First Hawaiian Bank raises $600K to Japan relief


First Hawaiian Bank has raised more than $600,000 to help survivors of the Japan earthquake and tsunami.

CEO Don Horner said Tuesday the company raised the funds through a "Japan-Hawaii Relief Fund" that was set up on March 11. All the money will go to the Japanese Red Cross Society’s relief efforts.

BNPP, the bank’s parent company, recently announced it would donate $1.2 million.

All of the bank’s branches are still accepting donations until March 31. First Hawaiian is also participating in "Aloha for Japan," a statewide campaign to raise funds for the Japan America Society of Hawaii. That initiative is also a benefit for the Japanese Red Cross.

First Hawaiian Bank is the state’s oldest bank with branches throughout Hawaii and Guam.
