Salvation Army receives grants for energy relief
The Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands recently received 10 energy relief grants totaling nearly $150,000 from Hawaii Energy to help improve energy efficiency at Salvation Army locations statewide.
On Maui, the grants include $20,975 for interior and exterior LED lighting at The Salvation Army Thrift Store and Donation Center in Kihei, $3,371 for interior and exterior LED lighting and an air-conditioning unit at The Salvation Army Thrift Store and Donation Center in Lahaina and $3,676 for interior and exterior LED lighting at the Lahaina Lighthouse Corps.
“The Salvation Army has done so much to help our community by providing food boxes, basic need items, financial assistance and overall emotional and spiritual care during the pandemic,” said Brian Kealoha, executive director of Hawaii Energy. “All of us at Hawaii Energy are happy to provide this assistance that is estimated to reduce the energy cost for the Salvation Army by approximately $23,000 a year and channel those funds into these vital programs.”
