Windward YMCA Receives Funding

Bank of Hawaii recently donated $25,000 to the YMCA’s Windward Capital project. The Windward Y Branch opened in 1950 in a log cabin on Makawao Street in Coconut Grove, just down the road from St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. Today, the Windward YMCA is a vibrant branch with more than 1,700 facility memberships. The branch also operates six A+ after-school programs and serves hundreds of children through Summer Fun, Intersession programs and swim lessons. Pictured (from left) are Bank of Hawaii vice president and wealth adviser Lisa S. Goo, Windward Y executive director Bill Stone, YMCA of Honolulu president and CEO Michael Broderick, Bank of Hawaii vice chairwoman and chief fiduciary officer Shelley B. Thompson and vice president and senior wealth adviser Maureen Coogan.
