The Fairmont Kea Lani donated $4,390 to Maui Food Bank’s Aloha BackPack Buddies program through Fairmont Hotels & Resort’s second annual Trees of Hope Campaign.

Throughout the holiday season, guests and colleagues of the resort were invited to adorn the hotel’s Tree of Hope with donations of $10, $20 or $50 to benefit Maui Food Bank’s Aloha Backpack Buddies program.

The Fairmont Kea Lani also offered a special room package through the holiday season which included a $10 donation per night of their stay.

“The Fairmont Kea Lani’s very generous contribution to the Aloha BackPack Buddies program will provide 5,270 meals for children in need this school year,”said Maui Food Bank Development Director Marlene Rice. “We are so grateful to the Fairmont Kea Lani’s commitment to help the hungry in Maui County. Mahalo for their continued support of our programs and the Spirit of Aloha they share with our entire island community,”

“We are delighted to make an impact on eliminating childhood hunger by raising significant funds to support Maui Food Bank’s Aloha Backpack Buddies program” said Fairmont Kea Lani General Manager Charles Head. “Through the generosity of our guests and colleagues, we are able to provide 5,270 meals for Maui schoolchildren living at or below poverty level by providing them with a pre-filled backpack containing six meals to take home for the weekend.”


Fairmont Kea Lani’s 2015 Trees of Hope campaign is part of a global Fairmont Hotels fundraising initiative to support children’s charities in the local community of the resort.
