RevoluSun Donates $5,000 and other significant support for a playground in Niu Valley | Community Spirit
Innovative playground continues to attracts supporters to build community's first playground
HONOLULU - http://www.niuvalleyplayground.com/ - Hawaii's leading solar energy firm, RevoluSun, has partnered with the Niu Valley Community Association to raise $100,000 to purchase playground equipment. As a corporate sponsor, RevoluSun has joined a growing list of organizations that have given or pledged at least $5,000 to support this innovative public-private project, including the HMSA Foundation, Landscape Structures, KaBOOM!, Let's Play and the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group.
Peter Kay, Niu Valley's Playground Chair, said that "RevoluSun is a perfect example of a company embracing a spirit of giving and community. We hope that more organizations will follow their lead."
Eric Carlson, one of RevoluSun's principals, added "RevoluSun empowers people to take control of their energy future to build cleaner, smarter communities, so we are proud to be a supporter of empowering the Niu Valley community to make a brighter future for the keiki."
In addition to the significant monetary donation, RevoluSun plans a robust community program to help raise awareness and support of the project. In an effort to educate homeowners about solar, RevoluSun offers weekly Solar Open Houses throughout Oahu where customers open their homes to let others see their solar systems in action. In addition, RevoluSun holds regular solar education seminars statewide to educate people about the basics of solar. Through both these channels, RevoluSun will have information and make regular announcements about the Niu Valley playground project, in an effort to gain more support.
"In addition to leveraging our existing educational channels, RevoluSun will also be printing and distributing mailers, yard signs and our new street team will be out in full force encouraging Niu Valley residents to get involved and help make the new playground a reality," said Carlson. "We're so pleased to be a part of this project."
"We're grateful to RevoluSun for their generous donation of time, money and manpower today and the additional commitment to provide a $500 donation per system installed in the month of February to our playground for all residents of Niu Valley," said Jeannine Johnson, Secretary of the Association. "RevoluSun has installed a dozen solar systems in Niu Valley and several of its principals and sales people live here in Niu Valley."
Other creative fundraising strategies the Association has planned to raise money are an ice cream social in February at Bubbies Ice Cream in Koko Marina and a series of teak furniture sales. Samantha Spain, owner Bali Furnishings and a Niu Valley resident, will give a portion of the sales to the playground on purchases of brand new teak tables, loungers, cushion boxes starting January 21. "Taking part in such a worthy cause was something we didn't even think twice in asking how we can help. Laying a strong foundation on a playground accessible for everyone and promoting outdoor activities for our future is what island living is all about," said Ms. Spain.
