Hometown Hero - Heidi Acosta

Hometown Hero Week 19 Winner - Heidi Acosta

Congratulations to our Hometown Hero week 19 winner, Heidi Acosta! Heidi works with the most at risk in our community, our kupuna. Since the beginning of the pandemic, she has worked tirelessly to ensure that not only her clinicians were safe, but clients as well. Her most recent act of kindness was helping to coordinate a kupuna hot meal giveaway with Bayada Home Healthcare and Uptown Kitchen.

Thank you Heidi for the dedication you have shown to our community. Through your selfless acts of giving we are reminded of the importance of compassion for others and that true aloha spirit lives on in Maui County, even through the toughest times. You are a real life hero and we are forever grateful.
