Community Partner Makes Our Work Possible: Carlsmith Ball
Hale Makua Health Services is fortunate to have Carlsmith Ball's support and partnership. Since 2002, the company has donated over $54,000 towards improving the lives of Maui’s frail elderly and disabled individuals by sponsoring our annual fundraiser, Kokua for Kupuna.
Among their 60 attorneys is Paul Ueoka, who has served on our Board of Directors and as an active member of our Governance Committee for the past 10 years. In addition, Paul provides guidance and lends his expertise to Hale Makua Foundation as a Board Trustee.
Because of businesses like Carlsmith Ball and their generous employees, we are able to continue providing services and care to individuals in our community who can’t afford it. We wouldn’t be able to successfully offer these services without their support, and we are so grateful.
