Hospice of Kona gets $5.5K from Ohana Fuels

KAILUA-KONA — Every quarter, Ohana Fuels partners with a community nonprofit organization, and donates a portion of every gallon of gasoline purchased at Ohana Fuels stations in that community. Hospice of Kona’s donation was raised at all 11 Ohana Fuels stations on Hawaii Island between July and September 2019, including through car washes at the Ohana Fuels/Minit Stop station at Hulikoa Drive and Queen Kaahumanu Highway in Kailua-Kona.


“We appreciate being selected by Ohana Fuels for this great program,” said Laura Varney, CEO of Hospice of Kona. “The funds raised by our community — by visiting Ohana Fuels, telling their friends and families to also fuel up, and participating in our car washes — will help our many hospice patients, families and friends.”
