Community Gift Giving

Welcome and mahalo for visiting our Community Gift Giving page! Young Brothers has a long standing tradition of supporting our local island communities in many ways, including in-kind gratis shipments, equipment donation, and participation in the Saltchuk Giving Initiative – Hawaiʻi Region.  Find out how we can help your organization below!

Young Brothers offers support to active non-profit, 501(c)3, organizations in the form of gratis shipments, which are in-kind services to transport goods on Young Brothers sailings. Over recent years we have regularly provided assistance to organizations in our communities make a greater impact.

As a guideline, Young Brothers provides gratis shipping benefits to non-profit organizations with a focus on:

  • Children
  • Education
  • Health
  • Human services
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Agriculture

Requests should be made a minimum of 30 days prior to requested ship date, and approved projects must benefit the community at-large.

Young Brothers’ Equipment Donation program helps provide non-profit organizations with permanent storage in the form of used dry containers for a variety of projects and groups that support children, education, health, human services, environmental stewardship, and agriculture.

Containers are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and may not be readily available for an event.

As Saltchuk companies, we work together to make meaningful impacts in the communities where we live, work and serve. Our network of sister companies has a rich history of giving back, contributing an average of $2.5 million in cash and in-kind support each year.

In addition to the significant support directed through our operating companies, in 2014 Saltchuk established Giving Committees in Alaska, Washington, Florida, and Hawaiʻi.

The Hawaiʻi committee represents the three Saltchuk companies operating here: Young Brothers, Hawaiʻi Petroleum & Minit Stop, and Aloha Air Cargo. The Hawaiʻi Regional Committee distributed over $1,400,000 since it’s inception.
