2017 Give Back Day Beach Clean-up
This year, the HSCPA coordinated it’s Give Back Day with Earth Day to celebrate the environment and raise public awareness about pollution. Making a difference in the community that we all live and play in is a given and it takes working together for this common goal. On Saturday, April 22nd, about 50 Y-CPA professionals and students from UH Manoa and HPU gathered at Ala Moana Beach Park for HSCPA’s annual Give Back Day. While the weather forecast did not seem promising, we were committed to following through with this event which was rescheduled from April. It turned out to be a beautiful day!
We broke out into groups to play Gimme Gimme to see which team could find specific trash items in the Magic Island area. Everyone returned with a lot of interesting trash. Congratulations to Team Siete from HPU!
Our special thanks to the volunteers and our sponsor, Robert H.Y. Leong & Company, CPAs! Mr. Leong and his firm have been our biggest supporter of this community service project for many years – we appreciate it very much!
The Y-CPAs are proud of its commitment to community service and invite others to join in the support. Let’s beautify our surroundings. Be kind to the environment and those around you by picking up trash when you see it lying around. It doesn't matter who left it there, just pick it up!
