ALTRES, Hawaii's largest human resources organization, took the top spot in adopting the most ducks of any company in the United Cerebral Palsy Association (UCPA) of Hawaii’s "Great Hawaiian Rubber Duckie Race." The event took place on Saturday, March 22, 2014, at the Ala Wai Canal where over 8,000 rubber duckies were released from the Kalakaua Avenue bridge.

ALTRES employees set the goal of adopting the most ducks of any company and banded together to adopt 701 of the cute, yellow waterfowl, surpassing all other companies in the 27-year history of the race. Employees also volunteered their time to help tag the ducks before the race and collected donations on race day. “More than 100 of our employees participated to raise funds for people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities. At ALTRES, giving back to our community is part of our DNA,” said ALTRES Director of Operations Debbie Padello.

Donna Fouts, UCPA Executive Director said, “UCPA is thrilled to have such a strong community partner in ALTRES. Their efforts helped raise nearly $4,000 for UCPA’s recent Great Hawaiian Rubber Duckie Race.”

Founded in Honolulu in 1969, ALTRES is a second-generation, family-owned business and Hawaii’s largest human resources organization. With 165 employees in six office locations, the ALTRES family of companies includes ALTRES Staffing, simplicityHR by ALTRES, and KilaKila Employer Services.
