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.

It is quite hard for us to believe that the year has flown by so quickly!  We are a little over 3 months away before the end of the school year!

One thing the PTA board needs to take care of on an annual basis is the recruitment of new PTA board members, who are enthusiastic about helping the school and our students achieve more!

I can personally tell you (Lawrence the web guy, here) that it has been a very fun and rewarding experience for me.  The group of individuals that make up the board are an incredibly talented and hard-working bunch!  I have really enjoyed working with ALL of them for the past 5 years (through school furloughs, school consolidations, and a spectacular Fun Fair) and I look forward to continue working with them next year!

Unfortunately, parents need to leave the board due to their child graduating or personal obligations they need to fulfill and we do need to address these vacancies.

WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP in filling these vacancies! If yourself or someone you know would like to join our board, please contact us and we can provide more information to you! For the next school year, we will have the following positions open on the board:

May Meeting Chair
March Meeting Chair

Thank you for making it this far into the message! Please feel free to contact us or email with any questions you may have or if you’d like to nominate yourself, a friend, or family member!
