Monsanto Supports the Girl Scouts of Hawaii in More Ways Than One
For more than 2 years, Monsanto Hawaii has been committed to supporting the Girl Scouts of Hawaii by making both charitable donations as well as volunteering time to help improve their facilities.
Monsanto Company’s philanthropic arm, the Monsanto Fund, recently donated $20,000 to the Girl Scouts of Hawaii. Following the donation, employees from Monsanto’s Kunia and Haleiwa farms volunteered their time at the Girl Scouts’ Camp Paumalu on the North Shore of Oahu. They spent a morning cleaning out the cabins to prepare for new mattresses and then helped to unload and set them up.
“Monsanto Hawaii has been incredibly generous to the Girl Scouts of Hawaii and we are very grateful for their support” said Shari Chang, CEO of the Girls Scouts of Hawaii. “Without their efforts, we would have never been able to make these needed improvements to our facility.”
“One of our goals here at Monsanto Hawaii is to continue to support and give back to our local community” said Dan Clegg, business and operations lead at Monsanto Hawaii. “We were honored when the Girl Scouts of Hawaii asked us to be a part of this project and hope to continue this partnership for years to come.”
Since 2010, Monsanto Hawaii and its employees have donated more than $300,000 to various community organizations and approximately 7,000 volunteer hours over the past year for various causes including health and human services, disaster relief, historic preservation, education and environmental protection.
