HONOLULU -- Aloha Petroleum Ltd., one of Hawaii's largest gasoline marketers and convenience store operators, is collecting cash donations at its 30 Aloha Island Mart locations on Oahu and the Big Island to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association's mission to conquer neuromuscular diseases, according to the company.
"Aloha Petroleum remains committed to supporting non-profit organizations in our community, especially during these trying economic times," said Richard Parry, Aloha Petroleum president and CEO. "We recognize the importance of the services that the Muscular Dystrophy Association provides to local residents and believe our customers will also support this great cause."
Specially marked collection canisters are located at Aloha Island Mart checkout counters now through Aug. 31. For the month of August, Aloha Petroleum will be specifically collecting donations for MDA's "Lei of Hope" program where customers can donate $1 or $5 and receive their name on a flower, which will be displayed at participating Aloha Island Mart locations, according to the company.
Funds collected through the Aloha Petroleum collection canisters will help support MDA services in Hawaii. MDA funds outpatient medical clinics on Oahu, the Big Island, Kauai, and Maui through Castle Medical Center. MDA funds also provide a one-time annual appointment with physical, speech, occupational and respiratory therapists.
