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 2015–16 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
  • IXL Program support
  • Phys­i­cal Edu­ca­tion, and Music pro­grams and teachers
  • Reflections Program
  • JPO Programs
  • Christmas Parade
  • And so much more….

When Can I Donate?

You can donate to Liholiho any time you are shop­ping at Food­land between Sep­tem­ber 1st — 30th, 2015!

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.
