Tis the season for giving
We are grateful to report that 2013 proved to be a fruitful year for Whalers Realty, and what better way to celebrate and show our appreciation than to give back to the community. With all of our offices being located in West Maui, we strive to strengthen our community and help create a more positive environment for all of us to live, work and play.
Supporting West Maui is a deeply rooted value that Whalers Realty exercises throughout the year, but the holiday season holds special significance. Each year, we ask our agents and staff to choose a charitable/nonprofit organization based in West Maui to be featured at our Annual Holiday Party. We find that our agents, staff and friends are more than happy to donate to a cause that is supported by Whalers Realty, as the company provides them with so much opportunity to prosper and support their own families.
This year, the vote was unanimous: the charity would be Women Helping Women. We encouraged all our guests who were attending our Holiday Party to contribute either financially or through the donation of new and unused clothing and personal care items.
Women Helping Women provides safety, shelter and support to women, men and children who are victims of domestic violence in Maui County. Through advocacy, education and prevention, their objective is to empower victims and help them live a life free of fear.
“From our start in 1977 as a grassroots effort to provide assistance and support for women victims of domestic violence, Women Helping Women has steadily grown to become an established nonprofit agency that provides a comprehensive continuum of services to over 600 women, men and children each year. Throughout our 36-year history, Women Helping Women has expanded our organizational capacity to support a variety of programs, projects and activities focused on direct intervention, advocacy, education and prevention. Today, Women Helping Women supports a staff of over 20 dedicated professionals, with offices in West Maui and on Lanai.” Women Helping Women website.
