HIFICU Donates To Maui Food Bank

Hawaiian Financial Federal Credit Union donated $5,000 to Maui Food Bank last month, while continuing to increase its services and commitment to Maui County residents. Founded in 1936, HIFICU was the first chartered credit union on O‘ahu. Today, it is the fourth largest credit union in Hawai‘i with 15 branch locations on O‘ahu and Maui, over $750 million in assets and 61,000 members.

Assets School Donates To Hawai‘i Foodbank

Trustees, parents, families, faculty (past and present) and staff of Assets School collected canned goods and nonperishable food since early November to support families in need. The school then donated the food (a total of 40 boxes, which weighed in at 1,254 pounds) and a $300 check from an Assets School family to Hawai‘i Foodbank on Dec. 1, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving known as National Giving Tuesday. Pictured are Assets family Jason and Judah Cottle; Linda Jameson Myers, Assets vice president of advancement; Ron Mizutani, president and CEO of Hawai‘i Foodbank; and Ryan Masa, Assets head of school.


The Great ASB Turkey Drive-Thru

Hundreds of American Savings Bank teammates across the state participated in The Great ASB Turkey Drive-Thru, the bank’s first-ever event to celebrate 1,100 employees for their hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic. The event took place during the bank’s Teammate Appreciation Month, with employees on each island (O‘ahu, Hawai‘i Island, Kaua‘i, Maui and Moloka‘i) picking up a free turkey to take home and share with their families over Thanksgiving. As a bonus, ASB handed out 20 randomly selected “Golden Turkeys” to winners who received an extra $200 cash card to help make the holiday season a bit brighter. All leftover turkeys were donated to local nonprofit partners.


Maryknoll Students Give Thanksgiving Baskets

Maryknoll School students presented Catholic Charities Hawai‘i with bountiful Thanksgiving baskets assembled for 45 families in need, filled with nonperishable items and gift cards that recipients can use to purchase perishable items for a Thanksgiving meal. This is the 14th year that Maryknoll has partnered with CCH on this project to share the spirit of Thanksgiving and uphold its commitment to community service.
