Nonprofits come together to help kupuna at Wai Ehu Kou III & IV
Na Hoaloha, Maui Economic Opportunity Youth Services and Malama Maui Nui came together July 23 in an effort to help four kupuna at Wai Ehu Kou III & IV with outside chores.
The effort was part of Na Hoaloha’s project Kokua Kupuna, an effort started by Kea Hokoana-Gormley, the organization’s new executive director.
Malama Maui Nui, a nonprofit organization whose mission includes maintaining Maui Nui’s environment, lent all the tools, coolers, rakes, weedeaters, gas, etc.
The MEO kids were divided into four lots and raked, weeded, hosed driveways, washed windows and more.
Other volunteers included Pua Pahukoa, Na Hoaloha volunteer coordinator; her husband, Josh Pahukoa,; her brothers: Elijah Vierra-Moniz, Malachi Vierra-Moniz; and her nephew Dylan Kawaiaea.
