Please consider participating in this event! The money (plus an additional percentage matched by Foodland and Western Union) comes back to Liholiho for teachers’ salaries and school equipment! Thank you!
What is the Give Aloha Program?
Give Aloha is a donation program that benefits schools of choice. During the month of September, when you shop at Foodland you can donate to Liholiho. Western Union and Foodland will match part of every donation.
Why make a Give Aloha donation to Liholiho school?
Donate through Give Aloha to Liholiho to retain current teachers, staff, and programs, and provide your child(ren) with good education and safety. If every Liholiho family donates $100 (maximum of $249 for each Maika‘i card holder account) in September when shopping at Foodland, we will be able to raise enough funds in 2014–15 to pay for:
- Part time teachers, which allows for smaller class sizes
- KIDBIZ 3000 literacy program, which has helped raise reading test scores at Liholiho
- Lunchroom Supervisors
- Physical Education, and Music programs and teachers
When Can I Donate?
You can donate to Liholiho any time you are shopping at Foodland between September 1st — 30th, 2014!
How do I participate?
Present your Maika‘i Card at any Foodland checkout or customer service desk and tell the cashier that you would like to make a donation (cash, check, charge or debit card) of up to $249 to Liholiho Elementary School, Organization Code #77919. If you don’t have a Maika‘i card, simply give your phone number to the cashier, who will process your donation and arrange to have one provided for you later.
ASK THE CASHIER TO GIVE YOU TWO RECEIPTS that will include the amount you donated to Liholiho School. Keep the original receipt for tax deduction purposes and attach the other copy of the receipt to the class donation form. The class donation forms will be sent home on September 1st. Your child and your child’s class will get credit for every receipt attached when the form is returned to the homeroom teacher.
Am I the only person who can make donations on behalf of our family?
No, your relatives, friends, or neighbors can also donate to Liholiho School when they shop at Foodland. They should give you the copy of their receipt, which you can attach to your child’s class donation form and have your child get credit for the donation.
