Food Drive At Pearl City Sites
West Oahu residents have two convenient places to donate food this weekend in Hawaii Foodbank’s final push to restock its shelves to feed the state’s hungriest citizens.
The 24th annual food drive runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Pearl City Shopping Center, Pearl Highlands Center and six other collection hubs on the island. It’s the charity’s largest fundraiser of the year, and the goal is to provide 1 million meals in the form of canned goods and monetary donations. (Oahu fire stations accept donated items all month long.)
Most welcome are meats, meals, fruits, soups and vegetables – all canned.
According to Hawaii Foodbank, it also can transform a $10 donation into 25 meals. Last year the nonprofit assisted 183,500 people with food donations across the state.
