On behalf of the employees of the Hawaii State Judiciary, the Judiciary’s statewide Japan Relief Fund coordinator Lori Okita has presented a $19,489 check for the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief Fund to Coralie Matayoshi, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross, Hawaii Chapter.

The Judiciary’s donation will be used by the American Red Cross to assist the survivors of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on March 11.

During the presentation, Okita and Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald thanked the employees who contributed.

Okita said she was very pleased at how much she and the other site coordinators were able to collect in little more than one month’s time, but was not surprised at the generosity of the “Judiciary ohana.”
