Volunteers are the heart and soul of Hawaii 3R’s. It’s one of the primary reasons 3R’s was formed in 2001. Without exception, volunteers have continued to drive repair and maintenance projects at several Oahu public schools this year.
Prudential Locations Foundation
On September 20th, a group of 35 volunteers from Prudential Locations, spent a little more than two hours at Ka’ewai Elementary in Kalihi, applying non-skid paint to campus walkways to protect students and staff from slipping.
Additionally, volunteers repainted the lines in the school’s parking lot and hopscotch areas.
Earlier in the year, these seasoned volunteers from Prudential Locations performed a similar service at Kailua Intermediate. To date, Prudential Locations have completed 15 volunteer projects with Hawaii 3R’s. Both school projects were coordinated and supervised by Jade Painting.
Mahalo to Prudential Locations!
First Hawaiian Bank
As part of a new corporate initiative at First Hawaiian Bank, bank employees have dedicated their weekends to community service throughout the state. Hawaii 3R’s was the beneficiary of this effort last Spring when over 100 bank employees and friends volunteered at three Oahu public schools: Manoa Elementary, Kawananakoa Middle School, and Waialua High.
Altogether, these volunteer projects not only boost student morale at the schools benefiting from the effort but save the state thousands in repair and maintenance costs.
