Community partners join school supply collection efforts to support Ready to Learn program

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

American Savings Bank (ASB) joins Helping Hands Hawaii (HHH) to support the 16th annual Ready to Learn (R2L) program, which provides low-income and homeless children with basic school supplies.

American Savings Bank branches statewide will collect school supplies and monetary donations for the Ready to Learn program during normal branch hours from June 15 to July 15. Donations collected at neighbor island branches will remain on the island upon which they were received to benefit local children. Customers should reference “Helping Hands Hawaii” when making donations at the branch.

“American Savings Bank is proud to partner with Helping Hands Hawaii in support of the Ready to Learn School Supply Drive. Together we can ensure that Hawaii's keiki start their academic journey with the tools they need to succeed in school,” said Rich Wacker, president and CEO of American Savings Bank.
