According to executive director Scott Giarman, First Hawaiian Bank’s corporate donation is KUW’s second largest. “It seems like it’s getting more and more rare for a business to care about being a good corporate citizen,” he said. “But this is a clear demonstration that First Hawaiian Bank truly cares about the Kauai community. When you think about it, ensuring that robust social services are available on our island is an investment in the well-being of their Kauai employees and their customers; and that is a statement that First Hawaiian Bank is here to stay.”
This donation brings the 2015 Annual Campaign to 83% of its ambitious goal of $700,000. Contributions made before the end of February will count toward this goal and can be made at the Kauai United Way website, where donors who do not have access to workplace payroll deduction can set up regular contributions at intervals that are convenient to them in any amount, large or small.
Kauai United Way is our island’s umbrella charitable organization. One contribution helps our whole island. Money raised on Kauai stays on Kauai. Kauai United Way’s Partner Agencies offer a diverse array of dozens of social service programs that save lives daily and help tens of thousands of Kauai people every year. When those in need in our community get the professional help they deserve, every one of us is better off. Let’s all live united – the Kauai United Way!
