Thank Hawaii’s Teachers
We've all had teachers in our lives that have inspired us, driven us and helped shape us into the people we are today. Maybe they're even teaching our kids now! Everyone has a story to tell of their favorite teacher, the one that went above and beyond the call of duty.
We are indebted to these teachers, and we believe they deserve our gratitude, no matter how long it's been.
But for us, thanking America's teachers is more than about just showing our appreciation. It's also about giving them the ability to make a big impact in their classrooms and community.
Throughout the year nationally, Thank America's Teachers and Farmers Insurance will give away more than $1 million in educational grants to our nation's teachers, supporting proposals and exciting projects that make a difference.
Farmers Insurance Hawaii is happy to provide our Hawaii teachers opportunities through this program, along with the AdoptAClassroom.org program.

Cereal Boxes for the Keiki
Farmers Insurance Hawaii employees donated over 100 Christmas wrapped cereal boxes for the children at Kids Hurt Too. Kids Hurt Too too focuses on children, ages 3-19, who have lost a parent through death, divorce, abandonment, incarceration, deployment, or being in foster care (including care-givers). They provide a safe and loving environment where they share stories, strengths and talents, and learn healthy and safe ways to cope.
Children make positive connections with adult mentors and are empowered. Peer support programs prevent abuse of children by increasing open communication within families and connections to community resources. As families engage in supportive relationships and enjoy activities together in the community, their hearts and homes are healed.
