Restoring the spirit of gratitude and giving back this year was important to our entire team, but we knew we had to modify the way we traditionally organize our Annual Thanksgiving Outreach event, with respect for concerns surrounding COVID-19. We skipped the large gatherings and brought business to two local restaurants instead, each of which prepared 500 bentos for us to distribute to less fortunate families and veterans.
Mahalo to UPS, Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, and our generous sponsors, volunteers and church organizations who helped ensure the success of who participated in our 22nd Annual Thanksgiving Outreach. Together, we were able to serve an early Thanksgiving dinner to 1,000 individuals at six locations that provide food, shelter and opportunities for our west side community.
Ko Olina Charities, a 501 (c) (3) organization, was created to expand community participation and outreach to West Oahu residents. Supported by donations from resort operators and residents, public donations and grants from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.
