March 16, 2017 — Aloha House to be Ohana Fuels Nonprofit Beneficiary in April, May and June 2017

Ohana Fuels is pleased to announce that the nonprofit Aloha House will be the recipient of its “Fuel Up, Do Good.” program for the months of April, May and June 2017. A portion of every purchase of their TOP TIER™, fuel-efficient gasoline brand made at any of the eight Maui Minit Stop locations will be donated to the organization. Aloha House’s mission is to promote recovery and healthy lifestyles to individuals and families by providing compassionate, effective and comprehensive behavioral health services with the spirit of excellence and aloha. The organization helps more than 6,000 people each year through its substance abuse and mental health treatment programs. Its residential and outpatient programs include a medically monitored detox facility, substance abuse/addiction treatment, a sober living program, crisis outreach services, family therapy services, community based case management, the Drug Court program and Maui Counseling Group clinic.

“We are tremendously grateful to Ohana Fuels for choosing Aloha House as one of its recipient organizations,” said Aloha House Chief Executive Officer, Jud Cunningham. “Funds raised will help ensure that under-served individuals and families can access our services in order to accomplish their recovery, vocational and personal goals. We strive to remove barriers to treatment, and this donation will help us cover the costs of providing care to individuals who otherwise would not be able to get help due to lack of financial resources.”

As part of the “Fuel Up, Do Good.” program, Aloha House will hold two car washes to raise additional funds. The first is scheduled for Saturday, April 8th from 10:45am-2:45pm at the Ohana Fuels Minit Stop gas station located at 85 S. Wakea Avenue in Kahului.  The second will be held in June, with the exact date and time TBD. Ohana Fuels is providing space for the car wash and all needed materials.  The cost will be $10 for each car wash.

Ohana Fuels first began the “Fuel Up, Do Good.” program in 2012 as part of its commitment to supporting organizations and missions important to its customers. Each year eight different nonprofits or community groups – four on Maui and four on the Big Island – are selected as beneficiary organizations. Aloha House’s two partner agencies are past beneficiaries, with Maui Youth & Family Services receiving more than $3,000 in 2013 and Malama Family Recovery Center receiving more than $7,000 in 2016. “We deeply appreciate ‘Ohana Fuels’ support of all three agencies and their commitment to our unified tri-agency vision – that everyone has the help they need to achieve and maintain a foundation for lasting recovery and well-being,” said Frances Duberstein, tri-agency Development Coordinator.
