The nonprofit Hawai‘i Realtors Charitable Foundation is continuing its commitment to eliminating food insecurity and hunger in Hawai‘i with its first-ever food drive throughout the month of September.
Through Sept. 30, the foundation is collecting monetary donations through its website, as well as donations of canned food at dozens of locations statewide, under its #OneCanIfCan campaign.
Canned food donations on each island will benefit their respective island food banks.
“We are encouraging any level of giving at this critical time of need during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Moana Andersen, president of the foundation. “Just one can makes a difference. Ten dollars can go a long way by providing 25 meals for Hawai‘i families, including our keiki and kupuna.”
The foundation, launched earlier this year with a $50,000 donation to food banks throughout Hawai‘i, serves local communities by supporting charitable organizations and their efforts to assist those in need.
Kaua‘i food dropoff locations include all the eight fire stations from Waimea to Princeville. Donations will go to the Kaua‘i Independent Food Bank.
