HFS credit union gives Easter Seals $22,103
HFS Federal Credit Union officials presented Easter Seals Hawaii with a check for $22,103 on Dec. 11. The donation was part of the credit union’s fall campaign soliciting donations from members to raise funds for the individuals with disabilities and special needs that Easter Seals Hawaii serves each and every day. Campaign dates were Nov. 13-Dec. 7.
HFS marketing specialist Alexander Kay-Wong, executive Vice President of support services Jason Hayashi and President and CEO Nathan Abe presented the check to ESH acting CEO Mason Williams, Vice President of development Iwalani Dayton, director of early intervention Charlene Robles and Hilo Support Services representative Tisha Takazawa. The check presentation was held at HFS Federal Credit Union in Hilo.
“Easter Seals Hawaii is so very thankful to have the support of HFS Federal Credit Union and all their members,” said Dayton. “Many of our programs and services would not be possible without community support and 100 percent of the proceeds raised in Hawaii stays in Hawaii.”
