Kahala Nui Helps Hawaii’s Seniors

As part of its ongoing commitment to seniors, Kahala Nui recently donated $7,000 worth of baskets full of food and toiletry items needed by seniors at Palama Settlement. Kahala Nui associates from all departments got together to fill and pack each basket by hand. After more than four hours with all hands on deck, the project was finally completed and baskets were donated to Palama Settlement for delivery to homebound seniors.
