To celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2020 we created the “Kokua 150” program that gave each employee $150 to designate to a local nonprofit of their choice. Little did we know how meaningful this program would become. Last year, 170 A&B employees participated in this program (over 90%), and together we donated $25,500 to Hawaii charities.

Employees, such as employee Charlie Loomis who designated his Kokua 150th donation to local organization HUGS as pictured above, designated their Kokua 150 grants to a wide range of organizations including food banks, schools, animal shelters, environmental groups, youth clubs, cultural organizations, and well-loved community programs.
