HONOLULU, Hawaii—First Hawaiian Bank has managed to raise $53,627 for its Aloha Relief for Harvey Fund.
In an announcement yesterday, Bob Harrison, FHB chairman and chief executive officer, said all contributions to the Aloha Relief for Harvey Fund were donated to the American National Red Cross to assist the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston and eastern Texas on Aug. 25, 2017, causing catastrophic flooding. It was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the U.S. mainland since Wilma in 2005.
FHB established the fund to assist the American Red Cross in their efforts to help the thousands of residents who were devastated by Hurricane Harvey.
FHB donated the first $25,000 to the fund and its 62 branches in Hawaii, Guam, and Saipan served as community donation collection points from Aug. 31 through Sept. 30, 2017.
A check was presented yesterday by FHB executive vice president and chief information officer Derek Baughman and FHB Foundation president Sharon Shiroma Brown to Coralie Matayoshi, chief executive officer, American Red Cross Pacific.
FHB was founded in 1858 as Bishop & Co. and offers a suite of banking services to consumer and commercial customers, including deposit products, lending, wealth management, insurance, private banking and trust services. The bank operates 57 branches in Hawaii, three on Guam and two on Saipan. FHB Inc., the parent company, is the largest publicly traded company based in Hawaii. (PR)
