23rd Annual Food Drive at Pearl City Shopping Center on April 21

Apr 9, 2012 | PC Community


The 23rd Annual Food Drive to support the Hawaii Foodbank will be held on Oahu on Saturday, April 21, 2012. With the Hawaii Foodbank's daily supply of food donations reaching very low levels, the Hawaii Foodbank is asking the support of the community to help re-stock their shelves in order to feed our neighbors in need.

"The Annual Food Drive is the Hawaii Foodbank’s largest fundraiser for both
canned goods and monetary donations. The core of our mission at the
Hawaii Foodbank is to ensure that no one in our ohana goes hungry."
