The Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui received a $8,429.22 donation from the Macy’s Thanks for Sharing Campaign held at the Maui stores last fall.

Macy’s has contributed to BGCM over the years through Thanks for Sharing, a fundraising campaign held annually at Macy’s stores across the country.

The funds donated to BGCM this year will be used for educational programming at the local clubs.

“We sincerely appreciate the continued generosity of Macy’s, their employees and their customers,” said BGCM Chief Executive Officer Kelly Pearson. “It is only through partnerships such as this that we can continue to provide important, life-changing programs to our members.”

Founded in 2000, the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui is “to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.”


BGCM serves over 9,000 Maui County youth annually through six clubs and outreach programs. Clubhouses located in Central Maui, Kahekili Terrace, Paukukalo, Ha‘ikū, Makawao and Lahaina provide award-winning, evidence-based after-school and summer programs.


The Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui believe that “success is within reach of every young person who walks through the doors of our clubs.”
