2022 Food Drive Isn’t Over Yet! Donate Before May 13, 2022


Aloha mai Faculty and Staff!

We have less than four weeks left of the 2022 Food Drive Campaign, and we want you to know that it is not too late to tell your colleagues, organize a department or unit food drive team, and vie for the Chancellorʻs Pizza Party. Contact one of the Food Drive or Aloha Committee members for help (see list below) or food drive boxes or simply click on this link to securely make a monetary donation online.

      We understand how challenging times are now with inflation, the war in Ukraine, the high cost of        living in Hawai`i, tax time and the on-going effects of the pandemic, but even a $10.00 donation         or 5 pounds of canned goods or a bag of rice goes such a long way in helping feed the people in our communities that just canʻt make ends meet and depend on our donations to help feed their keiki, elderly parents, and even themselves.

So now is the time to give.
