Bank of Hawaii celebrated its tenth annual Community Service Day on Saturday, Oct. 24, at Ala Moana Beach Park, a 100-acre park with over a one-mile stretch of sand and adjoining beach, located one mile from Waikiki Beach.
Nearly 200 Bank of Hawaii employees, family and friends, helped to beautify the iconic park, referred to as the “people’s park.”
Working with the City & County of Honolulu’s Department of Parks and Recreation, volunteers applied a new surface coating to the mile-long pedestrian pathway. The coating for the pathway, which has never been resurfaced, is fortified with sand for slip resistance and durability. Volunteers, also known as the Bankoh Blue Crew, scraped and re-painted 65 picnic tables throughout the park.
“Parks enhance the life of a community, and that is especially true here in Hawaii. Our parks are such an essential part of livable, sustainable communities that we were excited to partner with our City & County to help rejuvenate one of our most popular parks. On behalf of Bank of Hawaii, we’re so proud to be enriching the lives of the nearly one million park-goers who use this space every year,” said Chairman, President and CEO Peter Ho.
Congratulations Bank of Hawaii!
