Kaiser Permanente Employees Support The Maui Farm  Through Volunteer Service

Kaiser Permanente physicians and staff on Maui today continued a decade-long tradition of giving back to the community on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. More than a hundred employees and their families participated in a day of service with The Maui Farm in Makawao, assisting with landscaping and renovations. Volunteers worked in groups to clear debris and trim overgrown trees on the 8.3-acre property. Additional volunteer groups planted in the gardens, banana patches and pastures, or assisted with repairing animal facilities.

Today’s volunteer project was part of a larger community service effort involving more than a thousand Kaiser Permanente employees statewide, with additional events on the Big Island and Oahu. They joined thousands of Kaiser Permanente employees nationally, who, rather than taking a holiday “day off,” took the “day on” volunteering their time in honor of Dr. King and their communities.
