As 2018 comes to an end, the Staff and Board of Directors at Hui o Ko'olaupoko want to send a huge aloha and mahalo to every volunteer, grassroots activist, and conservation hui we have had the opportunity of collaborating with and working alongside this year. Without a well rounded community network and support system, the massive projects that nonprofits like ourselves take on would not be possible.
We are so grateful to the 1,270 volunteers who have joined us in the field this year, and to the countless others who have supported HOK in various ways such as Plant Foster Parents, technical assistance, and monetary support- we could not do it without your help! Together we have worked almost 7,500 hours in the field, and we still have one more month to go!
We wish everybody a joyful holiday season and encourage you to give gifts that keep on giving. Whether that means volunteering for a cause that is close to your heart or choosing to make a monetary donation, HOK would be honored to be a part of your holiday giving.
Visit our calendar for a list of upcoming volunteer opportunities or check out our Giving Tree to see how your monetary donation will be put to good use.
