On Veterans Day, during Homelessness Awareness Month, Bankoh Blue Crew employees, family and friends came together on Saturday, Nov. 11, to volunteer at organizations that serve veterans, families and individuals affected by homelessness in the state of Hawaii and across the West Pacific Region.

More than 300 volunteers, throughout the state and the West Pacific Region partnered with 11 nonprofits during BOH’s first bankwide Community Service Day.

On Oahu, volunteers served brunch to veterans, painted, cleaned, landscaped, cleaned out garages and provided financial literacy at:

  • Institute for Human Services, the state’s oldest, largest and most comprehensive human services organization;
  • Kahauiki Village, a planned development of 153 one- and two-bedroom homes for homeless families in Honolulu;
  • Mental Health Kōkua, the oldest, private non-profit mental health organization in Hawaii;
  • YWCA-Fernhurst Residence, a facility dedicated to successfully transitioning women from prison back into the community; and
  • U.S. Vets, provides military veterans and their families services including housing, counseling, career development and comprehensive support.
