Virtual Fundraiser for Hawaii Foodbank
October 12, 2020
Aloha Pacific FCU has joined with a number of Hawaii credit unions through November in a virtual fundraising drive for the Hawaii Foodbank.
To donate through our fundraising page, click here. We hope to raise at least $2,000. In addition, APFCU will donate a matching $2,000.
As you might already know, the need in the community has been amplified this year by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic:
- Last year, 1 in 8 people in Hawaii faced hunger; this year, with the ongoing pandemic, it’s 1 in 6
- Hawaii Foodbank gets its donations from supermarkets and farms but this year, these donations have decreased
- There has been a 60% increase in requests in the last 6 months
- With a typical annual budget of $400,000, the Hawaii Foodbank has used $5.1 million in the last 6 months, reflecting the need
Our branches will also accept non-perishable food donations through November.
Mahalo for your generosity!
