Foodland's "Give Aloha" Program
September 1-30, 2015
In 2014, members and friends of Keawalaʻi Congregational Church donated a total of $6,487.20 to the month-long Give Aloha Program through in Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program. The “Give Aloha” Program honors Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan and continues his legacy of giving back to the community.
Together with a donation of $1,046.54 from Foodland and a total of $204.62 from Western Union, the total received for 2014 was $7,738.36. Since the program began in 1991, over $20,000,000 has been raised for Hawaiʻi’s non-profit organizations.
How it works!
From September 1-30, 2015 you are invited as a member or friend of Keawala‘i Congregational Church to once again make donations up to a cumulative total of $249.00 per person at check-out. Foodland and Western Union Foundation will match a portion of each donation.
Matching gifts will be calculated at the end of the program. Organizations will receive 100% of all customer donations given to their organization, plus their percentage of the matching gift provided by Foodland and Western Union.
How to donate!
Present your Maika‘i Card at the checkout counter and inform the cashier that you would like to make a donation to: Keawala‘i Congregation Church. Our five digit registration code is 78299.
If you do not have a Maika‘i Card, you may request one. Your donation will be added to your grocery purchase total. Again you may give up to $249.00. The amount you donate and the name of the church will appear on your receipt.
Any donation must be made payable to “Foodland” or “Sack-N-Save.” Donor names will not be released to the church, so if you would like us to know of your gift, please contact us directly so that we may properly acknowledge your gift.
Contributions are tax deductible!
Your contribution will be tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Please save your store receipt for tax purposes since it will be the only record you will have of your donation. Total gifts to organizations will be announced shortly after the drive has ended the week of Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan’s birthday.
