Quarterly Charities

The KeKokua Charity Committee comes together four times a year to decide on new charities to donate to. A few members present charities they are strongly passionate about and the rest of the members vote on the recipient. The charities nominated represent an issue that committee members have personal ties to, have family members that have been helped through these efforts, or just a mission that they feel strongly about. We invite the selected charity to our firm to present to the employees on their charities’ mission and how they help serve the community. After the presentation, the KeKokua Foundation surprises the charity with a check donation of $7,500.

The Pets for Vets program is dedicated to supporting veterans and providing a second chance for shelter pets by rescuing, training and pairing them with America’s veterans who could benefit from a companion animal.

The Pets for Vets team interviews each veteran to ascertain what he or she is looking for in a companion animal; we pair this with his or her personality and lifestyle to make the perfect veteran-pet match. Once the perfect pet is selected for the veteran, the pet spends time in the home of one of our trainers who teaches the pet basic obedience and other valuable behaviors needed to live with his/her new owner. This can include becoming comfortable with wheel chairs or behaviors needed to help with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury.
