TriWest Healthcare Alliance donated $5,000 to Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam’s (JBPHH) Military and Family Support Center (MFSC) during a presentation on June 8.

This is the fourth straight year TriWest has donated money to the MSFC.

“The reason why we donate money to the military is because it is part of our corporate objective to give back to the military community to help provide support to service members and their families,” said Karl Kiyokawa, vice president of operations in Hawaii for TriWest. “We really recognize the sacrifice that the military makes for our country, and it’s great when we are able to support them through contributions like this.”

Rear Adm. Dixon Smith, commander, Navy Region Hawaii and Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific, thanked TriWest representatives during the presentation.

“I personally want to express my appreciation for TriWest’s generous contribution here today,” said Smith. “It is because of organizations like TriWest that our service members and their families are able to utilize the programs that they need.”

Mary Lovely, president of the installation’s Friends of Fleet and Family Support Center, expressed her gratitude for TriWest’s donation.

“We are very grateful for TriWest’s donation of $5,000 that will go to support our programs at the Military and Family Support Center,” Lovely said. “TriWest was very generous and we are extremely appreciative of their efforts to give back our military.”

MSFC offers various programs to Sailors, Airmen and their families, including counseling services, assistance with lodging, relocation, child care, new parent support and phone contact information, among others.

TriWest Healthcare Alliance is the contracted healthcare provider for the Department of Defense and provides support to more than 2.9 million beneficiaries.
