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.
