Pacific Junk Removal helps homes and businesses rid themselves of junk, yard waste, and unwanted furniture with speedy removal and free price estimates. Professional, uniformed technicians arrive at homesteads and office buildings to swiftly cart off any refuse, excluding hazardous waste, dirt, or other junk-removal guys who have camped out and refuse to leave. Pacific’s 12'x8'x6' truck allows its haulers to pack away electronics, construction debris, and storm cleanup easily in one trip. And, rather than simply dropping off unwanteds at the dump, Pacific Junk Removal donates useable items to Goodwill and responsibly recycles whatever it can before safely disposing of all other materials.

When educator Nicole Kealoha set out to enrich her community, she harnessed the vibrant power of hip-hop and urban culture to captivate young people. Her nonprofit Diverse Art Center, launched in 2008, seeks to foster connections between youths and the community via enriching and engaging instruction from professional artists. The accomplished teachers and artists—including leading local art figure Shaun Castro and award-winning dancer Josh Skittle—strive to instill positive values and self-esteem in their pupils as they shepherd them through the many mediums that comprise hip-hop culture, including dance, music, and the visual arts. No fewer than five area schools participate in the center's fitness-focused Healthy Hip-Hop program, and daily urban art instruction includes tutorials in hip-hop lettering, break dancing, and beatboxing with inner-city kangaroos.
Hui Ku Maoli Ola traces its lineage back to 1999, when friends Rick Barboza and Matt Schirman established the nursery with a mission to preserve and celebrate the distinct flora of the Hawaiian Islands. Today, the company beautifies federal lands, private homes, and retail businesses with more than 100 species of native Hawaiian plants, the descendants of specimens brought from distant shores by ancient Polynesian settlers and very strong wind. The helpful crew tends to rows of waving ferns, shady trees, and flowering bushes as they restore native habitats with professional landscaping or educate students with lectures and field trips.
