In its inaugural year, Atlas Insurance’s “Backpack to School” project exceeded its projected goal, donating school supplies and collecting $2,500 for Queen Kaahumanu Elementary School.

In two short weeks, the Atlas Insurance employees and agents collected hundreds of essential school supplies such as backpacks, binders, composition books, folder paper, crayons, pencils, markers and rulers. In addition, Atlas employees and agents along with the support of the Atlas Insurance Foundation collected $2,500 in cash to be used towards school enrichment projects.

Accompanied by Franklin Tokioka, son of Atlas Insurance founder, Masayuki Tokioka, Atlas Insurance President Myles Murakami presented Queen Kaahumanu Elementary School Principal Holly Kiyonaga with a check for $2,500 on behalf of the employees and agents of Atlas Insurance. “Arriving in Hawaii from Japan, our founder, Masayuki Tokioka began his education at Queen Kaahumanu Elementary and credited his success to hard work, integrity and the support he received from the public school system,” said Myles Murakami, President of Atlas Insurance. “These kids are our future leaders and our employees and agents wanted to support them in every way possible.”
