Food Drives held all over the island during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays were very successful--but that food is gone now. Especially in this economy, food donations are needed for Maui's hungry residents year-round. Over 8,000 people on Maui, including 5,000 keiki, do not know where their next meal is coming from. Hunger will not stop without your help.
To help alleviate this ongoing problem, the nine hardworking Rotary clubs on Maui will hold an island-wide food drive for the Maui Food Bank--a "Rotarians at Work Weekend"--on Saturday and Sunday, April 27 and 28.
You will find Rotary club members accepting non-perishables and cash donations at Foodland in Kahului, Pukalani and Kihei; Lahaina Farms in Lahaiana, Times in Kihei and Lahaina, Cash 'N Carry in Wailuku, and Longs in Pukalani as they join over 70,000 Rotarians on three continents working at the same time in service to their home communities.
The most needed items are canned meats, tuna, soups, fruits and vegetables as well as meals with protein, rice, peanut butter, pasta and financial contributions.
The members of the Rotary Clubs of Kahului, Kihei-Wailea, Kihei Sunrise, Lahaina, Lahaina Sunrise, Maui, Upcountry Maui, Valley Isle Sunset, and Wailuku--and our island 'ohana--thank you in advance for your kokua.
