  • 2017 Give Back on Earth Day

  • 2016 Hawaii Foodbank Volunteers

    It was a beautiful, hot and sunny morning on August 27th where 11 Y-CPAs volunteered to give back to the community at its annual Hawaii Foodbank CSFP Senior Food Box Packaging event.  After a hearty breakfast provided by the HSCPA, volunteers gathered for instructions and formed various assembly lines.  Thank you, Y-CPAs, for your service to the community!

  • Y-CPAs at the Hawaii Foodbank

    On May 3, 2014, twenty Y-CPA members volunteered their Saturday morning to sort through tons of items at the Hawaii Foodbank warehouse.  They watched an instructional video on the proper sorting and salvaging of food and other products before 'going to work'.  Thank you, Y-CPAs, for volunteering your time to this worthy project!
