Volunteer Week Hawaii 2022 with nearly 30 Maui events April 17-23

Kanu Hawaii plans historic Volunteer Week Hawaii 2022 which aims for unprecedented unity of kama'aina and visitors alike as Hawaii emerges from the pandemic. More than 10,000 volunteers are anticipated to gather in support of hundreds of charities at more than 300 events held statewide.

On Maui, there are nearly 30 events scheduled that include a spectrum of activities across the county: native plant restoration at Keālia Pond National Wildlife Refuge; Honolua Bay cleanup; Na Ho Aloha needs volunteers for lawn care for seniors; and so much more. For online volunteering, Mālama Maui Nui is seeking volunteers who will help promote its April 22 Art of Trash exhibition and Trashion Show that will be held online on Earth Day with community voting. More at MalamaMauiNui.org/ArtOfTrash. The island of Lanai will be hosting a native tree planting led by 5th grade students at a Pulama conservation site and will also be conducting a Manele Bay clean up.

Maui groups and organizations can register an event at VolunteerWeekHawaii.org or participate in an existing one. Businesses are needed to encourage employee participation, donate in-kind and financially. Opportunities during the Week range from park and beach cleanups to food drives to lo'i and loko i'a restoration.

Volunteer Week Hawaii will be celebrated from April 17 to 23 and features hundreds of in-person and virtual volunteer opportunities statewide including a pledge drive and E Ala Ē, a worldwide oli (Hawaiian chant) on Earth Day.

Earth Day E Ala Ē. Thousands will join hands around the world and raise awareness of environmental stewardship with a sunrise oli, or sacred chant, at 6:06 am emanating from Maui's Haleakala in which worldwide participants can attend. To participate from your location and learn more, contact ealae@kanuhawaii.org or visit KanuHawaii.org/e-ala-e-2022/

Pledge to Our Keiki. Supporters are asked to sign the online "Pledge to Our Keiki" as their first act of service during Volunteer Week Hawaii. In an unprecedented partnership, the Hawaii State Department of Education and Kanu Hawaii have teamed together to collect 10,000 pledge signatures from public school students and their families by Earth Day 2022 towards their 50,000-signature goal by 2023. Pledge takers vow greater responsibility in environmental stewardship through personal actions. To sign the online pledge, the public can go here: PledgeToOurKeiki.org. Groups, businesses, and individuals are needed to mobilize signature drives for the online pledge as part of Volunteer Week Hawaii. The Pledge was created by a collaboration of students from across Hawaii.
