In February 2019, Hawaiʻi Unified partnered with Malama Learning Center to clean and revitalize Piliokahe (Tracks) beach in Waiʻanae. As the third largest private employer on the Waiʻanae Coast, Hawaiʻi Unified knows their connection with the community is strong and, along with their employees, show their support of the neighborhood they call home.
Malama Learning Center, a non-profit organization serving the Waipahu to Waiʻanae area of Oʻahu, hopes to teach and inspire local communities to live and work in sustainable ways through their hands-on learning projects they sponsor on the island. A team of 40 volunteers made up of Hawaiʻi Unified employees and their family members teamed up with the organization in the hopes of creating a long-lasting relationship based on their shared values of conservation and caring. With such a large group of dedicated volunteers, Hawaiʻi Unified was able to fully staff this community service project for the Malama Learning Center.
