Throughout September, Helping Hands Hawaii will participate in Give Aloha, Foodland’s annual community matching gifts program. We encourage staff, board members, volunteers and other supporters to make a donation at any Foodland, Sack N Save and Foodland Farms store. Helping Hands Hawaii receives 100 percent of your contributions with an additional matching portion from Foodland and Western Union Foundation!
Your Give Aloha donations empower individuals and families who are going through difficult times. It provides behavioral health support services, benefits and language assistance, access to basic necessities and financial supports for homelessness prevention and re-housing efforts.
How to Show Your Support
- Visit any Foodland, Sack N Save and Foodland Farms store from September 1 to 30, 2016.
- Present your Maikai card at checkout.
- Tell the cashier you’d like to make a donation to Helping Hands Hawaii or use code #77061.
- Request two receipts: one for your tax records and one to send to Helping Hands Hawaii.
How Foodland Supports Local Nonprofits
- Foodland and Western Union Foundation matches a portion of donations made with Maikai cards.
- To celebrate the opening of Foodland Farms at Ala Moana Center, Foodland will donate a portion of sales made during opening week, August 31 to September 6, to this year’s Give Aloha matching gifts fund. This means that all participating organizations throughout the state will have the opportunity to receive more in matching gifts! So the more everyone shops at Foodland Farms Ala Moana the greater Foodland’s total matching gift will be.
- Customers without a Maikai card may sign up for one at checkout.
- Matching gifts are divided proportionately among all participating organizations based on customer donations to the organizations.
