Virtual Fundraiser for Hawaii Foodbank

October 12, 2020

We're rising to the challenge in these challenging times. Help us raise funds for our community in need.

Aloha Pacific FCU has joined with a number of Hawaii credit unions through November in a virtual fundraising drive for the Hawaii Foodbank.

To donate through our fundraising page, click here. We hope to raise at least $4,000. In addition, APFCU will donate a matching $2,000.

As you might already know, the need in the community has been amplified this year by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Last year, 1 in 8 people in Hawaii faced hunger; this year, with the ongoing pandemic, it’s 1 in 6
  • Hawaii Foodbank gets its donations from supermarkets and farms but this year, these donations have decreased
  • There has been a 60% increase in requests in the last 6 months
  • With a typical annual budget of $400,000, the Hawaii Foodbank has used $5.1 million in the last 6 months, reflecting the need

Our branches will also accept non-perishable food donations through November.

Mahalo for your generosity!
