Give Aloha, Foodland's Annual Community Matching Gifts Program
Give Aloha, Foodland's Annual Community Matching Gifts Program, was created in 1999 to honor Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. "Sully" Sullivan, and continue his legacy of giving back to the community. Each year, during Sept.1 – 30 at all Foodland and Sack N Save stores statewide, customers are encouraged to donate at the checkout to their favorite Hawaii non-profit organization. This year, Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match each donation, from customers, with more than $250,000 for all organizations combined. Since the program began in 1999, a grand total of more than $38 million has been raised for Hawaii’s charities.
Hawaii Rotary Youth Foundation (HRYF) is participating in this year’s Give Aloha, Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program.
HRYF was founded by Mr. Sullivan during his year as Rotary’s District Governor in Hawaii, 1976-77.  It was Sully’s desire to assist Hawaii’s high school graduates realize their potential by attending a college or university, of their  choice,  here  in  Hawaii  or  on the mainland United States.  This coming year, HRYF will award $275,000 (2 $10,000 and 51 $5,000) scholarships to students of all participating Rotary Clubs in District 5000.
Throughout his lifetime, Sully gave generously to many causes and encouraged the spirit of giving in others. It is in his honor that we present Give Aloha, Foodland's Annual Community Matching Gifts Program.
Sully Spent His Life Giving to the Community. His Legacy Continues! 
Our deepest Mahalo’s go out to Sully and his family!
How to Donate
At checkout, present your Maika'i card (or give your 10-digit number) and inform the cashier that you would like to donate to Hawaii Rotary Youth Foundation (77199).  If you do not have a Maika'i account, you may establish one by telling the cashier you would like to do so; you will need to give a unique 10-digit number (such as your phone number).

  • You may donate up to $249 per organization over the course of several store visits. You may make donations to more than one organization.
