HONOLULU, HAWAII — American Savings Bank (ASB) teammates participated in a community cleanup on October 29 together with city and state government officials and Vibrant Chinatown groups. The ASB volunteers focused on College Walk, Sun Yat Sen Mall and areas of A’ala Park, which are in close proximity to ASB’s future campus at 300 North Beretania Street. Other volunteer groups tackled various areas throughout Chinatown.

State Senator Suzanne Chun Oakland, Representative Karl Rhoads, City Councilmembers Carol Fukunaga and Joey Manahan, and Vibrant Chinatown groups also participated, providing coordination, supplies and refreshments. The City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Parks and Recreation provided paint and assisted during the day.

“For more than 90 years, ASB has been supporting the dreams of residents, business and our diverse community. Our 1,200 teammates across the state are active members of the communities we serve, and each day they contribute in many ways. We are honored to again participate in this community cleanup and excited to be joined by so many of our teammates, community leaders and Chinatown groups,” said Richard Wacker, President and CEO, American Savings Bank.

This was ASB’s fourth service project in the area within the past 18 months. ASB participated as part of their volunteer service program called Seeds of Service.
