Mālama Maui Nui (formerly known as Community Work Day Program) and West Maui Mountains Watershed Partnership teamed up with volunteers from Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawai‘i for a cleanup project on Saturday, Jan. 17.

“It was fun!” said Case Manager Courtney Cabebe. “Our group cleared a large portion of koa to open up the cemetery and breathe life into the scene.”

When kids take care of the land and those resting in it, they build a brighter future for the entire community. When organizations come together to facilitate laulima, they make Maui a better place to live.
