American Savings Bank teammates were at Waimea Elementary School, Kapaa High School, Waiakea Elementary School, Konawaena High School, Maui Waena Intermediate School, Molokai High School and Moanalua Elementary School for area beautification including repairing gardens painting and landscaping.
"Our 1,200 teammates across the state are active members of the communities we serve, and each day they contribute in many ways. I'm honored to support these great schools and excited to be joined by so many of our teammates," said Rich Wacker, President and CEO of American Savings Bank.
