Two schools in West Oahu received a “cool” gift from Fujitsu.
The company donated $20,000 worth of air conditioners to Waianae and Makaha elementary schools.
The units were delivered to the campuses Wednesday morning.
“We want to give back. We’ve been very fortunate to live and work in Hawaii and be successful,” said Drew Santos from Fujitsu. “But it’s important that the kids have a healthy environment, and those with asthma and breathing problems, we want them to have a comfortable environment in which to learn, to make them better students, especially out here where it gets so hot and humid.”
Fujitsu says it has been donating air conditioners for years, including to schools in Waipahu and Hawaii Kai.
