Skyline Donates over 13,000 pounds of food to the Maui and Kauai food banks

Skyline Eco-Adventures, Hawai'i’s award-winning zipline tour company and operator of the first zipline course in the United States, launched their 3rd annual Skyline Loves Kama’aina resident promotion in September supporting local Food Banks on Maui and Kauai.

In September, Skyline Eco-Adventures offered free Zipline tours to Hawai'i 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 Kaua'i.  The promotion zipped over 750 Kama’aina residents supporting the donation of more than 7500 food items to the Maui Food Bank and Kauai Independent Food Bank  On Maui, the Maui Food Bank received over 7500 pounds of food which provides for over 9500 meals 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.

In addition to Skyline’s local community involvement Skyline Eco-Adventures is committed to giving back to local community groups, and as a member of 1% For The Planet, Skyline also donates at least 1% of annual revenues to local conservation causes.  For more information on Skyline’s charitable giving, visit www.zipline.com/community
