Blue Jay Wireless, in Hawaii, partnered with Aloha United Way of Hawaii nearly a year ago and that has afforded the company the ability to reach out to many who may qualify for Lifeline service, the company said.
Aloha United Way of Hawaii recently approached Blue Jay Wireless Hawaii and proposed a tandem financial contribution to support their upcoming efforts to give a waterproof zipper pouch to those that are literally homeless, without the assistance of a shelter, during the upcoming 2017 state-wide Point in Time Counts/Surveys (PITS).
Aloha United Way of Hawaii will provide other resource information in the pouch, as well.
WESTMINSTER - Aloha United Way in Honolulu will launch a youth leadership and community improvement program, thanks to a $30,000 grant awarded by SimplexGrinnell, a Tyco business, with funds contributed by employees during the company's annual United Way Campaign.
This fall, Aloha United Way will implement the school-based program, which empowers students to design and launch lasting social ventures that have a positive impact in the community.
We are very excited to implement this program, which is transforming young people's lives," said Pamela Maeda, vice president, fundraising and major gifts for Aloha United Way.

raise its funds?
