About 150 people who won incentive trips to Kauai from a Denver technology company spent part of their time sprucing up parks and other facilities on the Garden Island in community service projects this month, the county said.
The volunteers from IHS, a global business information services company, worked at Poipu Beach Park, Kawaikini Charter School, Makauwahi Cave Reserve, National Tropical Botanical Garden and Kilohana Plantation.
"We really appreciate the work that was done by the IHS employees at Poipu Beach Park," said Lenny Rapozo, county parks director. "It's not every day that we meet people who come to Hawaii for a vacation and volunteer to do community projects during their visit."
The IHS team that freshened up Poipu Beach Park was provided with paint, rollers and brushes through the county's Adopt-A-Park Program. It took the team about two hours to paint all of the picnic tables, perform minor repairs and pick up trash.
