Ohana Starts DoorTo-Door Food Drive

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - Front Page - By CAROL CHANG

A Pearl City fam­ily will mount its own hol­i­day food drive by go­ing door-to-door in their neigh­bor­hood this week­end to sup­port Hawaii Food­bank.

Christina Laney-Wy­check and her mother Yumi Laney, both agents with the lux­ury real es­tate bro­ker­age firm Ka­hala As­so­ci­ates, are now in their third year of this neigh­bor-to-neigh­bor ef­fort.

The women dis­trib­uted do­na­tion bags last week­end, and will be com­ing to col­lect them this Satur­day. Laney-Wy­check said their ter­ri­tory cov­ers Hoolana and Hoohai streets, and ar­eas “close to Don Qui­jote and Food­land, near the po­lice sta­tion.”

“We are proud to take this op­por­tu­nity to give back to our com­mu­nity and to lend a help­ing hand to fam­i­lies in need,” she added. “We know that the econ­omy has been tough on many fam­i­lies this year, stretch­ing their fi­nances to the limit. With the food drive, we can help al­le­vi­ate some of that stress and give fam­i­lies plen­ti­ful hol­i­day meals.”

The Real­tors have plenty of sup­port from Ka­hala As­so­ci­ates, which gives them the time they need for their projects. “We en­cour­age our agents to pur­sue their phil­an­thropic pas­sions,” ex­plained bro­ker-owner Myra Brandt. “Each Jan­uary, we sit down to re­view our per­sonal goals, and giv­ing back to our our com­mu­nity — in our own unique way — is al­ways part of those res­o­lu­tions.”
