At Uncle Clay’s House of Pure Aloha, we believe we have the responsibility to give back to the local and world community through ways that reach beyond the daily serving and operations within our store’s four walls.

HOPA really cares, so we express this care through innovative initiatives and programs that can make a real Pure Aloha impact in the lives of others.

The following are programs and projects we have launched or are in-development:

1) HOPA FUNdraising: the goal of HOPA FUNdraising is to partner with community groups and nonprofit organizations to grow awareness, raise money, and have lots of fun!  Through a “FUNdraising Event”, we rally people together at the House to enjoy HOPA Shave Ice.  The bigger the party the better: 15% of all purchases generated by the FUNdraising is donated to the partner organization.

2) “Share-HOPA-Forward“: SHF is a shave ice “pay-it-forward” experiment. Launched in Summer 2012, SHF aims to manifest HOPA’s Pure Aloha vision and purpose by engaging our one world ‘ohana (family) in action and service rooted in compassion, trust, gratitude, generosity, abundance, and joy.

3) “giveHOPA“: a giving platform that allows people to easily and generously share the simple, meaningful, and thoughtful gift of an ono HOPA shave ice with underprivileged youth and other people in need

4) “Pure Aloha Coins”: Every time you visit HOPA, we want to empower you to make a Pure Aloha impact.  So with each shave ice you purchase, you will receive a “Pure Aloha Coin” of monetary worth to give to one of several participating partner nonprofits or community projects.  The more shave ice we serve, the more we can give!
