The Hawaiʻi Chapter of the American Resort Development Association recently donated $2,500 to the Hawaiʻi Island United Way’s Puna Disaster Relief Fund. The Fund’s focus is on housing for Puna residents displaced by the recent volcanic eruption.
Mitchell A. Imanaka, ARDA-Hawaiʻi Chairman and managing principal of Imanaka Asato LLLC, said, “We are pleased to be able to support the Hawaiʻi Island United Way and its efforts to help the people of Puna dealing with the effects of the latest volcanic eruption.”

Hawaiʻi’s timeshare units account for 13% of the state’s visitor lodging inventory and thousands of jobs. The organization is committed to supporting the communities in which its resorts are located through organized events, monetary and in-kind donations, and volunteerism.
