Thanks to a $5,000 grant from Alexander & Baldwin Foundation, the Salvation Army's William Booth Safe Haven in Kahului obtained a portable bathroom and shower trailer to serve Maui's homeless population.
The new addition vastly improves the hygienic facilities for program participants, according to Major Brian West, coordinator for the Salvation Army on Maui.
Over the last 20 years, Alexander & Baldwin Foundation has donated more than $200,000 to the Salvation Army and its various programs statewide.
The Salvation Army recognized Alexander & Baldwin for its support of its homeless services at the Health Fair for the Homeless in Kahului.
