Will Smith Foundation, Best Buddies team up for cleanup

Best Buddies student and faculty members from Lahainaluna High School completed their annual community service project for 2014 cleaning a two-mile stretch of Honoapiilani Highway near Ukumehame Beach Park on Nov. 22.

The school chapter was invited by Susan Moulton, mother of Will Smith, to help with this highway and beach park cleanup project. Eight-year-old Will was killed in a car accident on this section of highway on June 3, 2007.

The Will Smith Foundation adopted this section of the state highway to help promote a cleaner roadside and prevent pollutants from entering storm drains, streams, and the ocean.

The Will Smith Foundation recently donated $7,500 to Best Buddies Hawaii to help start a new middle school chapter on Maui.
