KAHULUI – In the spirit of giving, Maui Electric contributed more than $144,000 to over 70 non-profits and community organizations this year.

Maui Electric employees also volunteered more than 1,800 hours of non-work time at various community events and activities on Maui, Molokai and Lanai in 2015.

“A tremendous part of our 94-year history is our commitment to our community,” said Sharon Suzuki, president of Maui Electric.

“We live and work in the communities we serve, and our employees care tremendously about this place we all call home. The spirit of giving is why so many of our employees generously donate their own time to help where they can.”

Guided by a mission to support community programs, environmental sustainability, health and human services, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education, Maui Electric donated to more than 70 non-profits and community organizations this year, including American Cancer Society, Boys and Girls Clubs of Maui, Alaka’ina Foundation, and the St. Anthony Jr.-Sr. High School Communications and Media Lab (CAM Lab).

In addition to the company’s monetary donations, employees also volunteered over 1,800 hours of their own non-work time to help at various community events in 2015. Such events included quarterly Adopt a Highway Cleanups; the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk; Arbor Day tree giveaway; charity walks on Maui, Molokai and Lanai; and numerous Maui United Way events throughout the year.
