"Whether it’s serving hot meals at our local homeless resource center or supporting keiki with hands-on experience when it comes to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math), our Maui Electric ohana cares very much about the people who live, work and play here on these islands that we all call home," said Kaui Awai-Dickson, host of the show and administration manager at Maui Electric. "That's why in this episode, we wanted to introduce viewers to meet some of the community partners we work with who are instrumental in improving lives and enriching our communities."
