Last month, Nathan Peracciny, a videographer from Volcom came by the Windward Clubhouse to feature our members and programs in their commercial. Volcom has what they call the Give Back Series where they aim to raise both funds and awareness for organizations that are doing great things in their own, respective communities.
The partnership with Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii began in 2010, where Volcom raised $5,000 and continued into 2011 with additional funds raised as well as a volunteer partnership with team rider Coco Ho, who is currently dedicating 50 hours of volunteer time to the organization as a part of her signature, Give Back Series boardshort.
Since then, Volcom has donated almost $100,000 enabling us to provide vital services to the 12,000 youth we serve a year. When you buy Volcom Hawaii-branded clothing items, a portion of the proceeds go directly to the Boys and Girls Club. All of the Hawaii-only products sold in Hawaii are tagged as Give Back with the aim to raise awareness and funds for this amazing, youth mentoring-focused non-profit whose mission is to inspire young people to become responsible citizens.
