GIVE ALOHA AT FOODLAND TO HELP US RAISE FUNDS!

American Cancer Society Hawai’i Pacific 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 at 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.

Donations may be received at all 32 stores statewide!

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 American Cancer Society Hawaii Pacific, code number 77154.  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.  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. 

Donations can also be made when you place an online grocery order for curbside pickup or delivery at https://shop.foodland.com/.

Foodland will also be accepting My Reward certificates as a $5 donation towards the Give Aloha Fund which adds to the matching gift.

This year, Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match each donation up to a total of $300,000 for all organizations combined!

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 Gift

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.

Real Men Wear Pink of Hawaii Kickoff

Gentlemen! The American Cancer Society Hawai’i Pacific is thrilled to be launching Real Men Wear Pink of Hawaii (RMWP)!

Real Men Wear Pink = Men Fighting Breast Cancer

Breast cancer affects everyone- women and men. That’s why we’re recruiting men to fight breast cancer through Real Men Wear Pink. This distinguished group of community leaders is determined to raise awareness and money to support the American Cancer Society’s mission and save more lives than ever before from breast cancer.

The Power of Pink

Every dollar raised helps the American Cancer Society save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support. Thanks to the passion of our Real Men Wear Pink supporters, we’re able to make a huge impact on the mission to end breast cancer.

RMWP candidates are an elite group of respected community leaders around the nation who support women’s health during the month of October.

Real Men Wear Pink of Hawaii Candidates as of August 24, 2020

The West Coast Kickoff was a regional ACS event including Hawaii that kicked off on August 20, 2020. RMWP of Guam will have their own kickoff scheduled and details of that kickoff will be shared once they have been finalized.
