With the holidays approaching and 2013 winding down, Hawaii 3R’s will end the year with 9 completed projects. [Note: The final project is scheduled to be completed during the coming Winter Break.]
Here’s a pictorial of two recent school projects involving over 100 volunteers from Prudential Locations and Central Pacific Bank that have significantly enhanced the appearance of two Oahu schools:

Moanalua High School – Parking Lot Re-striping
Congratulations to Prudential Locations, winner of the Community Spirit category (2013 Business Leadership Hawaii presented by Pacific Business).
More than 50 volunteers from Prudential Locations showed up bright and early on a Saturday morning ready to trade in pens and Deposit Receipt Offer and Acceptances (DROA) for paint, rollers and brushes. The morning started out cloudy, but even the threat of rain could not deter these volunteers from painting curbs, parking stalls and main drive ways. Their efforts even inspired the neighboring fire station to repaint (red!) curbs fronting their station. Jade Painting provided the on-site supervision for this half-day project and did a superb job in assigning this large group of volunteers that the job was completed quickly.

Ilima Intermediate – Lawn beautification and Irrigation
Never let it be said that bankers can’t handle the heat! About 40 bank employees braved the sweltering heat and high humidity in Ewa to beautify the front lawn of Ilima Intermediate on Fort Weaver Road. Demonstrating their motto, “CPB Works For You,” these dedicated bank employees from all parts of Oahu got down and dirty, cutting and planting sod into the school’s front lawn. They also planted new hedges along the front perimeter. With help from Hawaii 3R’s, the area also has a new irrigation system and a new concrete pad that joins a dirt area between the sidewalk and the campus walkway.

Mahalo nui loa to all of the volunteers from Prudential Locations and Central Pacific Bank. This is what Hawaii is all about.
There are visionaries, and then there are Visionaries. The late U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye, who passed away on December 17, 2012, in Bethesda, MD, was one such Visionary.
As the founder of Hawaii 3R’s, Senator Inouye not only helped to seed the fledgling program with federal funds and manpower, but he also made sure to check in on Hawaii 3R’s projects around the state on nearly every visit home.
We are very pleased to share this photo sampling of the various Hawaii 3R’s projects from around the state from previous years. Volunteers come in all forms, from young to old, students to administrators, family members and even our folks in military uniform.
|Campus projects help to instill pride in our students.|
