Darryl spoke about the Hawaiian’s culture of Ohana, strong sense of family that allows us to take care of one another. “My work inspires my belief and today I am inspired,” he said. “I am inspired to reflect on what is important to us. It’s up to us to make the positive change by giving back to the community in which we live.” To watch the session and see Darryl’s full speech, please click here.

  • Gentry Homes Partners with U.S.VETS – Barbers Point

    Nearly 50 Gentry Homes employees and several of their subcontractors generously donated their time, talents and building materials to help make improvements at the Kalaeloa facility for U.S.VETS – Barbers Point. “It is our pleasure to help our veterans through U.S.VETS,” said Debbie Luning, Director of Community Relations for Gentry Homes. “Our company recognizes the dedication and hard work that our veterans have provided to protect the citizens of our country and our freedom.  Our donation is a mere demonstration of our heartfelt thanks to our military troops and the respect they deserve. We strongly feel that it is our duty to give back to those who have given us so much.” Some of the work that Gentry Homes provided included installation of new cabinetry and shelving, cleaning the dining facility and on-site gym, landscaping, and constructing a new stage. The group also prepared dinner for 130 U.S.VETS clients and staff. Dr. Kim Cook, Executive Director for U.S.VETS – Barbers Point, offered her thanks for Gentry’s generous service.“We value Gentry’s contributions because it helps make it possible for U.S.VETS to offer essential services that support the individuals who served when their country needed them,” she said. “As troops return home, U.S.VETS strives to be a leader in innovative programs that empower our evolving veteran population with the tools they need to become self-sufficient.  If not for our community’s help, many veterans would struggle to adjust to civilian life, facing issues like homelessness and substance abuse without the support system that our organization provides.” […]

  • Special Thanks to Logan Atamian and Family

    It all began with a phone call. Mrs. Jory Atamian heard about U.S.VETS and wanted to know more about what we did for veterans in her community, so she picked up the phone and called. She spoke to Dr. Kim Cook, Executive Director for U.S.VETS – Barbers Point, about our mission and what the site does on a daily basis. Wanting to help out, Mrs. Atamian asked for a list of what the veterans need the most. She went on to explain to her son Logan was about to turn 6 – and that instead of presents this year, he had asked to give gifts to less fortunate individuals. He asked his family members who were coming to his birthday party to bring donations for two chosen causes – including U.S.VETS – instead of toys and games for himself. After his party, Logan came to U.S.VETS to drop off several boxes and bags of clothes, shoes, household items, canned goods, and more.  The staff and veterans of U.S.VETS were not only humbled to receive much needed items for its veterans, but were inspired by Logan’s selfless act of compassion at such a young age. He serves as an example of what random acts of kindness can do to change the life of others, and even more importantly serves as an example of inspiring others to do the same. We were thrilled to get to meet one of our youngest donors. In the spirit of community, compassion, and giving, U.S.VETS – […]
