Hawaii 3Rs has awarded five schools, including Leilehua High, a total of $115,000 to complete repairs on their campuses.

The latest round of grants - the agency’s 20th - will help the Wahiawa high school to make drainage improvements in the gymnasium.

The nonprofit Hawaii 3Rs creates incentives for each school community to nearly double its grant amount through donations of materials and labor (“sweat equity”) from the community and local businesses. The group also receives support from the state and federal government.

It was founded by U.S. Sen. Dan Inouye in 2001 to help reduce the backlog of repair projects at Hawaii public schools.
