Salvation Army Soup Kitchen Volunteer Day

Years ago, the Kauai Board of Realtors started a monthly volunteer program for the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen. We’ve continued that tradition and volunteer twice a year to help prepare and serve food. It’s one of the ways we enjoy giving back to the community.

Yesterday Christopher Ordonez, Ruth Marvin and her hanai niece visiting from Switzerland, Tess Bellmont, were there to help Char. Chopping, cooking, serving and cleaning, they served up about 100 meals of porkchops, sauteed onions, rice and vegetables. It was a successful endeavor, and Christopher learned the art of cooking rice!

The Kauai Salvation Army Soup Kitchen can always use your help, whether it’s in sweat equity by helping in the kitchen or via food or monetary donations. Don’t be shy! See what you can do to help. Contact Charito via phone at 808-278-8005 or via email at CharitoLontoc.814@gmail.com.

My late brother, Bruce Perdue

My late brother, Bruce Perdue

For me, April 22, is a day that is both happy and sad. It is a day to remember my late brother Bruce Perdue on his birthday. Bruce gave so much to the country, as a member of the armed forces, and to Kauai, as someone who always was there to help a friend or a stranger. He was loved by everyone who met him, on land or in the ocean.

When I offered my client, the seller of a custom built home he had built on Kapaka Road, the chance to choose a recipient for a 5% donation from my commission, I was excited that he chose the Kauai YMCA. This organization is the true meaning of kokua with a higher philanthropic purpose of building strong kids, strong families and strong communities. It is also something that would have meant a lot to Bruce and so giving this donation on his birthday seemed particularly meaningful.

Going forward I’ve made the commitment to donate 5% of my commission from each transaction to the local nonprofit of my client’s choice. It’s my way to honor my brother’s spirit, my family, and the spirit of giving that makes Kauai so special.
