Maui Community Work Day


We all know how great it feels to help put a smile on someone's face, especially a child...
I am happy to work with a company who makes it a point to give back to our community .

The Windermere Foundation was created  to support assistance programs for low-income and homeless families in  communities on the West Coast. In 1989 as a grassroots foundation serving families in need in Washington state, began, and,  has  now grown to ten states, including Hawaii, raising over $23 million for programs and organizations that provide shelter, clothing, children’s programs, emergency assistance and other services .

Here on Maui, our Windermere Valley Isle Properties just finished  Community Work Day. Last year we cleaned and spruced up the Makawao Boys and Girls Club. It was a great day and everyone pitched in to help the good folks in the Boys and Girls Club. This year we worked at the Kihei  Youth Center. It was so satisfying helping them deep clean and organize along with  keiki (kids) from the community .

We are all so busy with our lives, and to take time out to help others is a win/win.   Most of my volunteer efforts have been environmental ,working in tandem with  volunteer-on-vacation-hawaii.com  Somehow, planting trees was always  attractive to me.

I know from my personal experience, that being involved with the children of my community, working to make their lives even just a little bit better is equally rewarding, and I am grateful to Windermere for making it a point to give back.

If you have a chance to volunteer in your community, go for it!  You'll be happy you did.

 With Aloha
