Dole Plantation is offering kama’aina and military residents a chance to enjoy the activities available at the plantation, purchase various goods at a 15 percent discount and help the surrounding schools through October, all at the same time.

“This is our slow month,” says Susan Harada of Castle and Cooke Inc. “We thought this would be a good opportunity to get the kama’aina and military out to the plantation to re-experience it. We’ve done a lot of improvements over the last few years in terms of attractions, and food and beverage upgrades.”

Dole will be donating 5 percent of specific purchases made by kama’aina to Helemano, Miliani Waena, Iliahi, Wahiawa, Kaala, Waialua and Wheeler elementary schools.

Students from each campus will collect the receipts of the purchases to claim the funds from the plantation through the end of the month.

“There’s no cap, ” said Harada, on how much the plantation will donate. “So whatever the schools can collect, we’ll total up the receipts and cut them a check for 5 percent.”

Train rides, garden tours, items in the shop and the now world-record-holding hedge maze all are part of the program. For details, call 621-1500.
