2021 Give Aloha
Hawai‘i Meals on Wheels is participating in Give Aloha, Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program. This program honors Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan, and continues his legacy of giving back to the community.
How It Works:
From September 1-30, customers are invited to make donations of up to $249 to participating Hawaii non-profit organizations at checkout. Donations are accepted at any Foodland, Sack N Save or Foodland Farms checkout. Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match a portion of each donation. Individuals must use their own Maika’i number to make a donation. Donations made without a Maika’i number will not be matched.
How to Donate:
At checkout, present your Maika’i card (or provide your number) and inform the cashier that you would like to make a donation to Hawai‘i Meals on Wheels, code number 77345. If you do not have a Maika’i card/number, you may request to establish one. Your donation will be added to your grocery purchase total. You may donate up to $249 per organization; any portion exceeding $249 will not be matched. The amount you donate and the name of our organization will appear on your receipt. Donations must be payable to Foodland or Sack N Save.
Acknowledgement of Your Donation:
Donor names will not be released to our organization. Therefore, if you would like to us to know of your gift, please contact us directly so that we may properly acknowledge your gift. You may ask the cashier for a duplicate receipt to submit to us.
Are These Contributions Tax Deductible?
These contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please save your store receipt for tax purposes since it will be the only record you will have of your donation(s).
Matching gifts will be determined at the end of the program. Our organization will receive 100% of all customer donations given to us, plus each donation made with a Maika’i card, will be partially matched by a gift from Foodland and the Western Union Foundation.
Mahalo for your support!
