Since the global Covid-19 pandemic struck we’ve seen our state’s economy drop and our
once very low unemployment rate become the highest in the nation. 

Our friends, families and neighbors have been affected and we’ve all been isolated in the
shutdowns.  At the start of the pandemic 211 calls increased by 1000%, and then leveled off at an increase of about 600% over last year. With funding from AUW, the 211 service has helped connect people with financial resources for rent, mortgage payments, utilities, eldercare, and childcare.

In times of need, local people come together and help one another.  It is the Aloha
spirit in our community that helps to make us resilient.

The employees at DBEDT are raising money for Aloha United Way to help the community. Help us make a difference.  Give aloha.  Every dollar counts.
