More than 13,000 pounds of food was recently donated to local food banks by Skyline Eco-Adventures. In September, Skyline Eco-Adventures offered free Zipline tours to Hawaii residents with the donation of 10 non-perishable food items per person. Residents were able to experience ziplining on a choice of Skyline’s two Maui courses, including Skyline Haleakala or Skyline Ka`anapali, along with Skyline Poipu on Kauai.
During promotion, nearly 800 Kama`aina residents donated more than 7,500 food items to the Maui Food Bank and Kauai Independent Food Bank. On the Valley Isle specifically, the Maui Food Bank received over 7500 pounds of food which provides more than 9500 meals to locals in need, according to Stephanie Kaplan, Community Relations Manager for the Maui Food Bank. The Kauai Independent Food Bank received 5614 pounds of food from the promotion.
Skyline Eco-Adventures is also committed to giving back to local community groups; as a member of 1% For The Planet, Skyline donates at least one percent of annual revenues to local conservation causes. For more information on Skyline’s charitable giving, visit Zipline.com/community.
Skyline Eco-Adventures will be holding its sixth annual Zip 4 The Trees fundraising event benefiting Maui’s Children’s Charities on Saturday, Nov. 12 on the Skyline Haleakala Course. Visit Zipline.com/zip4thetrees for more information.
