Kahala Nui Lends A Bag

As part of its ongoing commitment to senior citizens, Kahala Nui recently donated $7,000 worth of bags filled with food and toiletry items needed by seniors of Palama Settlement. Kahala Nui associates from all departments assembled to fill and pack each recyclable bag by hand. Pictured (from left) are Lea Ramelb, Patrick Duarte, Stacey Schiller, Jean Evans, Darlene Canto, Lani Davis, Preston Terada and (kneeling) Ninoy Llamas.
