MidWeek (Hawaii) - - Front Page - By Cindy Adams, pres­i­dent and CEO of Aloha United Way

One of the things I en­joy about Aloha United Way is the op­por­tu­nity to bring peo­ple to­gether — invit­ing them to join our move­ment — to cre­ate hope and to change the land­scape of our com­mu­nity for the bet­ter.

One of the most com­mon ways for peo­ple to get in­volved is through our work­place cam­paign, now in its

The work­place cam­paign of­fers in­di­vid­u­als and com­pa­nies a con­ve­nient, safe and trusted way to do­nate and sup­port pro­grams and ser­vices for our com­mu­nity. and or­ga­ni­za­tions sup­port the cam­paign an­nu­ally.

Every do­na­tion con­trib­utes to help­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands in our com­mu­nity through a net­work of za­tions.

I t ’s d u r i n g c a mpaign sea­son that I am truly over­whelmed by the sup­port of our lo­cal com­mu­nity. Peo­ple from all walks of life and ev­ery­one i n be­tween — come to­gether to join our move­ment and make a dif­fer­ence in our com­mu­nity.

It’s ev­ery­day peo­ple who are serv­ing our econ­omy, who come to­gether an­nu­ally to do­nate what they can be­cause they un­der­stand the im­por tance of giv­ing, the harsh real­ity of strug­gling and t hat t heir do­na­tion, along with the do­na­tions of oth­ers, will make a dif­fer­ence in some­one else’s life.

We can all make a dif­fer­ence. It’s part of our lo­cal cul­ture to care for each other. At Aloha United Way, we pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for our com­mu­nity to join the move­ment, to do­nate and to vol­un­teer.
