Alpha Inc. supports of Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui
The Alpha Inc. ‘ohana has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui with an employee matching gift program. All donations made to BGCM by Alpha Inc. employees and partners will be matched dollar for dollar.
“During the early years of starting and growing Alpha Inc., BGCM helped my wife and I balance raising five kids and starting a company,” said Jason Stenger, president of Alpha Inc. “Knowing our kids were in good hands at the club gave us comfort and allowed us the extra time needed to grow our company. Now that Alpha Inc. has grown to become a leader in the construction industry, it means a lot for us to be able to give back to this organization that has given so much to us.”
“We are so grateful for this partnership with Alpha Inc. and the generosity of Mr. Stenger, his employees and industry partners,” said Kelly Pearson, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui. “The ongoing pandemic has greatly limited our capacity to fundraise. We are unable to hold our Little Chef Big Chef gala this year due to necessary physical distancing guidelines. That event is our largest fundraiser, and the loss of this revenue leaves us in a deficit to effectively run our clubhouses.” BGCM relies on contributions from private donors to maintain their operations and continue to serve the youth of Maui.
BGCM has four clubhouses open (Central, Haiku, Lahaina, and Makawao) for onsite programming by reservation only and free membership until June 2021. BGCM is assigning members to small groups, where each group will have a “home-base” room for the entire day except for scheduled time in the clubhouse game room and outdoor fields.
“The bright side to serving smaller groups is that we are able to build stronger relationships with our members and a level of trust that is essential to their success in these uncertain times,” said Stephen Bennett, director of operations for BGCM.
The clubhouses continue to take proactive steps to protect members and staff such as: daily wellness checks, mandatory mask use, maintaining six feet of distance, increased handwashing, and cleaning program areas after each use.
