September 9, 2019, Kailua, HI. Foodland and Western Union Foundation in Hawaii started its annual “Give Aloha” Program on September 1st to continue the legacy of founder, Maurice “Sully” Sullivan of giving back to the community. Foodland gives more than $250,000 annually to non-profits that participate in the program.
For the first time this year, ALSFH signed up to participate in the program. Katherine O’Connor, ASLFH Treasurer, constructed its sign out of recycled cardboard. “I spent less than $2 on the sign,” Kathy said proudly, “I paid only for the grommets needed to attach the sign to the beams, as per Foodland guidelines.” The unique sign is now on display at the Kailua Foodland branch.
Alexa-Rae Telan, a student of Audio Engineering at the Honolulu Community College and volunteer for ALSFH, taped and edited a video promoting the ALSFH campaign for donations. It is posted on ALSFH page on Facebook. to view the video, copy this URL and paste it on your browser: https://www.facebook.com/divina.robillard/videos/10214837254039188/?notif_id=1536437070895277¬if_t=feedback_reaction_generich
