HELPING TO PROTECT AND PRESERVE THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF HAWAII
Continental Pacific, LLC invests in all areas of real estate throughout the United States and overseas. Due to the breadth and scope of land involved, Continental Pacific is establishing a land stewardship program to promote environmental awareness and give back to the local communities. Continental Pacific is honored to have the opportunity to work with the local Kahuku community to help protect and preserve the North Shore natural beauty that attracts people from all over the world.
LOCAL BOY SCOUTS HELP LAUNCH STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM WITH KAHUKU BEACH CLEANUP
On Saturday, May 7, 2016, Continental Pacific, LLC (“CP”), owner and developer of Kahuku Village, launched its stewardship program with the help of the local Boy Scouts of America. CP is dedicated to being a good steward to land by promoting environmental awareness within local communities. “Our goal as a company is to contribute to organizations that teach children to respect both the ocean and the land. It has been way too long since Kahuku Beach has been cleaned and we thank the Boy Scouts for participating in this stewardship project,” says Reynolds Henderson, a principal of CP. Nine Scouts, eight adult volunteers, and one youth volunteer came out to clean up trash and debris left behind on the beach adjacent to the Kahuku Golf Course. According to Eric R. Alquisa, A SM BSA Troop 664, the Scouts were amazed about the trash that other people left behind. Among the above normal amount of trash, they also found multiple tires and even a skiff. The beaches on the North Shore of O’ahu are some of the most well known and most beautiful. However, trash and debris are left behind or washed ashore. “This is a beautiful, pristine beach line, I wish that everyone could respect the ‘aina (land) and keep it beautiful for everyone to enjoy,” stated Alquisa. The Boy Scouts who volunteered were from the following troops: Troop 24 from Schofield, Troop 32 from Waipio, Troop 664 from Mililani, and Troop 777 from Honolulu.
WORKING WITH LOCAL NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION TO KEEP HAWAII CLEAN
Continental Pacific has formed a stewardship relationship with 808 Cleanups, a local non-profit organization aimed at keeping Hawaii clean from Mauka to Makai. On June 18, 2016, 808 Cleanups took part in a beach cleanup at the Kahuku Golf Course Beach. The cleanup removed 1,481 lbs of debris. Another beach cleanup at the Kahuku Golf Course Beach is scheduled for July 23, 2016, and continuing monthly to ensure that part of Hawaii stays clean and free of debris.

SUPPORTING LOCAL COMMUNITES
Continental Pacific, LLC (“CP”) has a history of working with local communities in the State of Hawai’i. On both the Big Island of Hawai’i and the Northshore of O’ahu, CP has offered many opportunities to local families. In addition, CP continues to give back to local communities by actively sponsoring groups like the Hawaii Youth Rugby and various beach clean ups.
On O’ahu in 2008, CP worked with the Kahuku Medical Center (“KMC”) to keep the hospital Emergency Room operational during turbulent times for the hospital. In 2014, CP again worked with the KMC, but this time to take control of KMC’s own destiny by negotiating a partial purchase/partial donation of the hospital property.
In 2011, CP again showed its commitment to the immediate local community of Kahuku by offering long-time renters – descendants of the sugar plantation employees – the right to purchase their home and the land around their home, or vacant land if they lived in a floodway area, for a price of $150,000 per property. Those who elected to purchase gained instant equity of hundreds of thousands of dollars and secured for themselves, and their family, a home.
KAHUKU RED RAIDERS RECEIVE $5,000 DONATION FROM CONTINENTAL PACIFIC, LLC
Continental Pacific announced its $5,000.00 donation to Kahuku Head Football Coach Vavae Tata and his football program on May 25, 2016. The funds will go towards supporting travel expenses for the face off between the Red Raiders and the Nevada Division 1 State Champions, the Bishop Gorman Gaels, ranked the fourth best team nationally, and US Today’s No. 1 op Super 25 Team from 2015. The game will be played in Las Vegas, Nevada, at Bishop Gorman High School on Saturday, September 17, 2016.
Reynolds Henderson, a Principal at Continental Pacific, said of the donation, “What a great opportunity for businesses to come forward, giving our state champs national exposure and an opportunity to show their strength and school pride against one of the best teams in the nation.” Henderson added, “It would just be great if other companies could match our $5,000.00 donation to help the Red Raiders who give all of us so much to be proud of every season.”
Kahuku Head Football Coach Vavae Tata said the game is a great opportunity for the players, “We are looking forward to and preparing for the challenge and look at it as another championship.” Tata went on to say, “We are appreciative to Reynolds Henderson and Continental Pacific for stopping by with this generous donation.” The Las Vegas game will give the Red Raider’s players exposure to a national audience where they can display their skills.
