The annual holiday consisting of turkey carving, bringing family together over the dinner table and giving thanks for your blessings will soon be gracing our island in a big way.
In addition to celebrating the holiday at home with the company of loved ones, Coldwell Banker Sales Associates and staff throughout Oahu will be showcasing the love for the traditions and togetherness of Thanksgiving by giving back to their local community.
For the sixth consecutive year, Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties will support Lanakila Pacific’s Meals on Wheels Pre-Thanksgiving luncheon by donating a $5,000 sponsorship to the program and volunteering at various sites throughout Oahu.

Lanakila Pacific’s Meals on Wheels is Hawaii’s largest and only island-wide meal service for seniors. Through monetary donations and help from volunteers, they are able to home deliver meals to those in need as well as serve them in Kupuna Wellness Centers where seniors are able to socialize with peers and participate in exercise, recreational and educational activities as they enjoy their hot fare. Individuals served through Meals on Wheels include those who are over 60 years of age and/or have a disability.
Meals on Wheels’ commitment to supporting one of Oahu’s most underserved communities is what inspired Coldwell Banker to lend a hand in their endeavors – and what better time to do this than for the charitable holiday of Thanksgiving?
During Thanksgiving week, Sales Associates and staff will be serving hot turkey meals with all the trimmings to almost 300 seniors registered in Lanakila Pacific’s group dining program at different sites throughout the island.
