LIHUE — Lynette Medrano-Stine, the Kauai United Way Campaign development director and community liason, was thrilled to find out that Shannon Maxwell of Enterprise Holdings could attend the KUW annual meeting and mahalo celebration.
Maxwell’s due date for baby’s arrival is not until after the celebration and Medrano-Stine was thrilled to discover that.
Shannon and other associates of Enterprise Holdings made a contribution for more than $41,197 Thursday afternoon to the Kauai United Way.
“The management and associates of Enterprise, Alamo and National car rental are nothing short of inspirational,” said Scott Giarman, executive director of the Kauai United Way. “They get how important the more than 80 social services funded by Kauai United Way make life on our island better for us all.”
The Enterprise contribution represents both the employee pledges as well as the corporate matching and is a Kauai United Way record.
In total, 71 employees pledged more than $27,000, or an average donation of nearly $400, Medrano-Stine said.
This total is Kauai United Way’s largest employee pledge amount, ever. Combined with the Enterprise, Alamo and National rental car matches at 50 percent, the total came to more than $41,197.
“We are tremendously grateful to the management and staff of Enterprise, Alamo and National car rentals for achieving such a successful campaign,” Medrano-Stine said. “Shannon Maxwell, EAN’s Kauai Group Rental Manager, coordinated a magnificent and fun campaign. Along with such an awesome campaign team, there is absolutely no question in my mind that these good people truly care and have the very best interest for those in need on Kauai.”
Kauai United Way is the island’s umbrella charitable organization where one contribution which stays on Kauai helps the entire island because its Partner Agencies offer a diverse array of dozens of social service programs that save lives daily and helps thousands of Kauai people each year.
