Foodland’s Give Aloha 2013

August 11th, 2013

Hawaii CAN is once again participating in Foodland’s Give Aloha program!! From September 1st through the 30th, customers can donate to Hawaii CAN at all Foodland and Sack N Save stores statewide. Foodland and Western Union Foundation will also match donations up to a total of $350,000. The matching donations have historically run out really fast so if you donate in the first week or so, Hawaii CAN will have a good chance of benefitting from the matching contribution. We will be grateful, however, for any donation made.

To donate, all you need to do is use your Maika’i card when you check out, and give the cashier our code, 78673.

Please see Foodland’s Give Aloha page for more details about this program.
