HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Aloha, with me is Leslie Wilcox, President and CEO of PBS Hawaii.
If you've recently driven on Nimitz Highway in Honolulu, you may have seen a building under construction at the entrance to Sand Island. That?s the future home of PBS Hawaii.
Aloha, Rick. It?s exciting to witness a community building a building. Our new home, The Clarence T.C. Ching Campus, is rising in a graceful curve along Nimitz, and we?re pleased to say that the construction is on time and on budget.
PBS Hawaii is a non-profit organization that's about education through multi-media storytelling. Hawaii News Now supports PBS Hawaii, because it exists solely to serve the people of our community. They?re a safe haven for our children, they share the stories of the Pacific and the world, and they preserve the music and cultures of Hawaii.
Thanks to generosity from across the state, our grass-roots campaign is growing day-by-day, step by step, one gift a time.
And now you?re in the home stretch.
We are, Rick. We?re at nearly 90% of our goal of 30 million dollars.
Great news, nearly 90%. But they need your help to finish this campaign. When you donate $1,000 or more, PBS Hawaii will acknowledge your support on the walls flanking their new front door, and with a donation of $500 or more, your name will be part of their Second Floor Donor Wall.
We invite you to share this vision of the mind and heart, a vision that's larger than all of us.
