Richard Parry, Aloha Petroleum president and chief executive officer, presented a check to Coralie Matayoshi, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross, Hawaii Chapter, on March 30.
In addition, Aloha Petroleum has set up special donation canisters at all Aloha Island Mart locations and participating Shell stations to collect funds to support Red Cross relief efforts. The canisters will be in place through May 31.
“The people of Hawaii have such strong ties to Japan, and many of us have relatives and friends who live in the areas that were impacted,” said Parry. “We want to do what we can to help and we know that others in our community want to offer their support as well. The Red Cross is always there to help in the aftermath of disasters, both in our own community and across the globe, and we’re proud to support their efforts.”
