Please con­sider par­tic­i­pat­ing in this event! Your donation (plus the addi­tional per­cent­age matched by Food­land and West­ern Union Foundation) comes back to Liholiho for part-time teachers’ salaries, school equip­ment, programs, and events.

Thank you to those who have already donated. So far $1429 has been raised! Don’t forget to turn in a copy of your receipt along with the class contest form to your child’s teacher or school office. The top 3 classes who donate more than $1000 will be rewarded with an ice cream party! The class contest form can be found here: Give Aloha Flyer.

What is the Give Aloha Program?
Give Aloha is a dona­tion pro­gram that ben­e­fits non-profit organizations. Dur­ing the month of Sep­tem­ber, when you shop at Food­land, you can donate to Liholiho Elementary. Your donation will be partially matched by Food­land and Western Union Foundation!

Why make a Give Aloha dona­tion to Liholiho?
Donate through Give Aloha to Liholiho to retain cur­rent teach­ers, staff, pro­grams, and pro­vide your child(ren) with good edu­ca­tion and safety. Donations will help fund:

  • Part-time teach­ers
  • Curriculum support
  • Reflections art program
  • JPO and other service groups
  • May Day
  • 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!

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. Your child’s class will get credit for every receipt attached when the form is returned to the home­room teacher or school office.

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.
