Servco Employees Present Backpacks Filled with School Supplies to Waipahu First-Graders | Business
First graders at Honowai Elementary School in Waipahu today have something to cheer about, thanks to Servco Pacific Inc. (Servco). In June and July, Servco employees collected 415 new backpacks and school supplies through an internal drive, to donate to first-graders at seven well-deserving schools across Oahu. In addition to Honowai Elementary, Ben Parker Elementary, Palolo Elementary, Puohala Elementary, Lehua Elementary, Lincoln Elementary and Kalihi Elementary all received the special gifts. Each of the schools received backpacks full of school supplies including crayons, markers, portfolios, three-ring binders, pencil boxes, glue, scissors, erasers, pencils, composition books and other necessary items earlier this month.
The backpack drive was initiated by a team of Servco employees who recognized that families may struggle to provide their children with what they need to succeed in school, particularly in these difficult economic times.
Longtime Servco employees and backpack drive chairs U’ilani Desilva, Joanne Chikazawa and Francis Lee expressed it this way, “We care about the community and are proud of our fellow employees at Servco for how they pitched in. These students now have the necessary tools they need to make learning fun and enjoyable.”
Servco Pacific Inc. is a top-20 Hawaii-based corporation and a 93-year-old privately held company primarily focused on automotive sales and service; consumer goods; insurance services; real estate and private equity investments.
