Boots & Kimo’s ‘Liked What They Saw’ At Windward Clubhouse
The kids at Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii’s Windward Clubhouse are well-fed and well-funded, thanks to Rick and Jesse Kiakona of Boots & Kimo’s Homestyle Kitchen. The brothers donat- ed $5,000 to Windward Clubhouse in December, and then followed up with a gift of 85 bentos for club members who attended more than 104 days in 2014.
“In 2011, my brother Jesse and I showed up at Windward Clubhouse unan- nounced to take a look around,” recalled Rick. “We liked what we saw, so we decided then and there to support the organization.
“We live, work and play in Kailua, so it’s important to us to support the Boys & Girls Club for all the good they do in providing a safe place for our keiki to go after school and during school breaks — and I’d like to challenge other Windward businesses to do the same.”
BGCH’s Windward Clubhouse has been based at Kailua Intermediate School since its inception in 2006, serving 600 kids annually.
