Pu’uhonua o Waianae

Hawaii Information Service 2015 Holiday Service Project
We partnered with Tyrell's Angels to bring some Christmas joy to children in need. Other companies and many friends were also inspired to join us.


“Inspired by the stories of “Puuhonua O Waianae,” the homeless community in West Oahu documented beautifully by Civil Beat last month, our staff — led by VP of Sales and General Manager Colleen Yasuhara and CEO Faith Geronimo — sought out a way to help. We connected with Tyrell’s Angels, founded to support homeless children, which has worked with the Waianae camp for more than three years. We then kicked off a donation drive to fulfill the kids’ wishes on the ‘Angel Tree’ as well as gather gifts and supplies for their families.”
