HONOLULU, HI (March 25, 2024) – The Central Pacific Bank (CPB) Foundation today announced a $10,000 donation to the Moiliili Community Center (MCC) to help fund its community programs. This is one of seven donations that will go to seven worthy organizations statewide for a total of $70,000 this year in which CPB is celebrating its 70th anniversary.

“MCC is very appreciative of the CPB Foundation’s donation. The $10,000 donation from the CPB Foundation will help fund programs for our keiki and kupuna, especially those on a fixed income, to ensure they can still participate in our Japanese Language School, our Senior Center classes and workshops,” said Nadine Nishioka, MCC’s Executive Director. “We greatly appreciate CPB supporting MCC through Shelly Kamakura (CPB Private Banking Team Manager) currently serving as President of MCC’s Board of Directors, and Jon Teraizumi (CPB Senior Commercial Banking Manager) having formerly served as President of MCC’s Board of Directors.”

MCC is celebrating 122 years in the community and it remains a vital resource for residents of Honolulu, providing a variety of programs and services for all ages. The center offers Japanese Language school and after-school programs for keiki, educational workshops for kupuna, a Respite Care program, a Thrift Store and a gathering place for many. The CPB Foundation's donation will be used to support classes and events so keiki and kupuna participants are able to enjoy the activities for their mind, body and soul.

"We are proud to support MCC and its mission to strengthen our community," said Arnold Martines, CPB President & CEO and CPB Foundation Director. "MCC has a storied legacy of helping people in the community and its programs and services truly make a positive difference in the lives of so many residents."
