ALTRES Supports Homeless Keiki with School Supply Drive

Before students go back to school in the fall, parents will hit stores across the island to shop for school supplies. However, for some families, backpacks, pencils, and composition books may be out of their budget. That’s why Aloha United Way started an annual school supply drive to support Hawaii’s homeless keiki. Every year they give over 1,500 school supply kits to students in need so they can head back to school with the educational tools they need to succeed.

This year the ALTRES team rallied together to collect everything from crayons to calculators in our own school supply drive, which was held from June 26 to July 20. We’re excited to support Hawaii’s keiki as they strive to continue their education and become our future leaders.

If you are interested in making a donation or would like to start your own school supply drive, visit the Aloha United Way website.

Athletic Shoes to the Rescue

Every June, the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Hawaii (UCP) hosts a casual day for businesses across Hawaii—employees donate money and dress in non-business attire to support the cause.

This year the ALTRES ohana celebrated by coming to work rocking sports attire in our own Get in the Game theme. Employees donned athletic shoes and dressed up in sports attire—from basketball to rodeo, our team loves to represent their favorite sports!

All proceeds went to UCP, the second largest non-profit health organization in the US. They provide services, educational programs, and research to support families living with cerebral palsy or other severe disabilities.

Donate to UCP via their website.

Sumo Showdown at the 2017 Bill Guss Memorial Picnic

There was sushi, sumo, and sun at the 2017 Bill Guss Memorial Picnic. The annual gathering is one of the many company events that ALTRES employees and their families look forward to each year.

This year’s picnic featured a Japanese theme. In addition to oishi foods, there were a variety of fun games and contests. Employees put their chopstick skills to the test in a group relay race and participated in a geta slipper contest. But the biggest and perhaps most entertaining event of the day was the sumo tournament. Wrestlers dressed up in inflatable sumo suits and battled it out in one-on-one matches.

The company picnic is not only about fun in the sun. It’s also about remembering ALTRES founder, Bill Guss, and celebrating the family-oriented culture he built. Since our beginnings in 1969, ALTRES has always been a place where employees love what they do and are taken care of like family.

Head to our Facebook page to see more fun photos from the picnic.
