At this time each year, with our thoughts turning to the upcoming season of giving and thanksgiving, Clark Realty agents and staff are preparing for the final days of fundraising for our Community Fund drive by inviting our friends, neighbors, clients and industry partners to join us in supporting the local non-profit organizations that have been selected as this year’s group of grantees.
The recipients of this year’s Community Fund grants were chosen by our Community Fund committee from among several nominees submitted by our agents. We’re pleased to introduce you to the four grantees for Clark Realty Corporation’s 2017 Community Fund campaign today!
To date, we have raised just under $20,000 for this years Community Fund. To join our efforts in supporting these groups, please donate online here or visit clarkhawaii.com/crccf for a mailing address if you prefer to send a contribution by mail.
The mission of Hospice of Hilo is to improve the lives of those they touch by offering support, guidance and compassionate care of body, mind and spirit.
Hospice of Hilo is concerned not only with the physical welfare of the person, but with their social, emotional and spiritual well-being. When a patient is admitted, the Interdisciplinary Team works with the patient and family to develop a plan of care that is tailored to fit the unique needs of the patient. Above all, hospice is care rendered with respect and an open heart, safeguarding the dignity of the patient and family.
The mission of Kids Matter–FCJC of West Hawaii is to provide support to the FCJC of West Hawaii and its programs, to assist victims of child abuse and neglect, to provide educational and awareness training to the communities of West Hawaii and to promote confidence-building among at-risk children and youth within the community.
Founded by local Rotary Clubs, each neighbor island Childrens Justice Center is supported by their respective Friends of the Childrens Justice Center group, a nonprofit organization that provides resources for the Centers, the professionals who work with victims and the children and families served by the programs.
The Alex and Duke DeRego Foundation’s mission is to provide young people the right skills to empower them with knowledge and awareness that will safeguard their lives and the lives of others.
The Foundation’s goal is to educate and bring awareness of Ocean Water Safety and First Aid CPR through programs either hosted by the Alex & Duke De Rego Foundation or sponsored by the Foundation (through organizations like the Junior Lifeguard Program and Hawaii Rescue Tube Foundation). It is also the goal of the Foundation to visit every High School and Charter School in Hawaii to share the family’s story and provide free First Aid /CPR training to any student who wishes to participate.
The goal of Habitat for Humanity is to serve families in need and end the cycle of poverty by providing homeownership opportunities across the island.
Habitat For Humanity Hawaii Island is the new entity uniting the former Hale Aloha O Hilo Habitat and Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii. Celebrating 15 years of service on the Big Island, Habitat Hawaii Island recently completed a 10-day blitz build culminating with 10 new homes completed on September 23rd. That’s 10 Hawaii Island families with a new home for the holidays!
