Blue Jay Wireless, in Hawaii, partnered with Aloha United Way of Hawaii nearly a year ago and that has afforded the company the ability to reach out to many who may qualify for Lifeline service, the company said.
It is another way to meet the needs of potential customers, in addition to a local event or other location sites for distribution. The partnership brings two recognizable organizations together in the community to help a population that is in need in the state of Hawaii.
Blue Jay has also partnered with many other non-profits and human service organizations in the Aloha State.
In Hawaii, human service and government officials associate Blue Jay as a potential communications solution for them and their clients.
Aloha United Way of Hawaii recently approached Blue Jay Wireless Hawaii and proposed a tandem financial contribution to support their upcoming efforts to give a waterproof zipper pouch to those that are literally homeless, without the assistance of a shelter, during the upcoming 2017 state-wide Point in Time Counts/Surveys (PITS).
On January 31st, HS Case Managers from all over Hawaii will be in the field supporting these efforts. The homeless people they encounter in the field during PITS will receive one of these pouches. PITS counts are done each year to help State Government locate and count the “literally homeless” and attempt to educate them on resources, as well as collect information that is instrumental to better understand and manage their efforts to end homelessness in Hawaii.
Each pouch will sport the Blue Jay logo to let them know who they can turn to for communication service. The pouches will include information about Blue Jay Wireless, including website address, local phone number, and some event site locations they can find Blue Jay Samaritans and representatives. Aloha United Way of Hawaii will provide other resource information in the pouch, as well. All in an effort to assist the homeless with information and potential access to important resources, including cell phones and service.
