Conference delegates to clean up Kakaako homeless shelter

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - More than 50 visiting meeting planners and hospitality suppliers will devote their free time to cleaning up a Kakaako homeless shelter.

Volunteers from the 14th Annual Pacific Rim Incentives & Meetings Exchange (PRIME) will work with the homeless at the Next Step Shelter Wednesday afternoon.

The clean-up effort will take place on Kakaako Forrest Avenue near the University of Hawaii's John A. Burns School of Medicine.

The volunteer service project is part of a Corporate Social Responsibility program that the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau established last year.
