Kona Community Hospital Employee Engagement Committee members conducted a beach cleanup at Old Airport last weekend, on Saturday, Jan. 28.
The committee, hospital employees, and family members spent several hours picking up rubbish on the shores of the beach park and in the picnic areas. Over a hundred pounds of trash were collected.
“We wanted to give back to our community outside of our facility as a healthcare community,” said Michelle Gray, current chairman of the employee engagement committee.
CEO Clayton McGhan said, “Kona Community Hospital staff are amazing … It was great to see the staff and their families come out for a singular purpose, to preserve the life and beauty of our beaches.”
