Partner Spotlight: Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water

Keiki Heroes is proud to welcome Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water as a Cape Club Sponsor. Our Keiki Heroes mission of protecting the community is well aligned to Waiakea Water’s community outreach goals.

“Being a Keiki Heroes Business Partner represents our dedication to support the needs of our community through our Kōkua Initiative Program. Since our values align with Keiki Heroes, it just made sense to become a Keiki Heroes Business Partner to impact more lives, after all Itʻs a Kākou Thing. We value our partnerships and the work that we do together to strengthen our community.” ~Ryan Emmons, Waiākea Hawaiian Volcanic Water Founder and CEO.

The Kōkua Initiative at Waiākea Hawaiian Volcanic Water has traditionally done monthly volunteer work like removing invasive species from our forests and helping to clean fish ponds here in our home town of Hilo. “Since the pandemic, we have pivoted our efforts to give back, uplift and strengthen those most vulnerable in our community,” said Director of the Kōkua Initiative, Geoli Ng. “You can find us donating and delivering water, volunteering our time and supporting groups from keiki to kūpuna. We are so proud to serve our community, lend a helping hand where needed and kōkua in the efforts to ensure we are doing our part to strengthen, uplift and give support to keep everyone healthy and safe.”
