The CHARITY WALK is a statewide event that occurs on Hawai`i Island, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai and Oahu in May. In 2017, 14,000 walkers raised over $2.25 million to help our local charities. In 1974 the Hawai`i Lodging & Tourism Association, formerly the Hawai`i Hotel Association, sponsored a charitable “Superwalk” to benefit one major charitable organization. In 1978, the Hawai`i Lodging & Tourism Association members voted to extend the reach of support offered by the Walk’s fundraising capability. The Visitor Industry CHARITY WALK is the result of this decision. Since its inception in 1978, over $32 million has been raised and helped hundreds of local charities throughout the State.
The Carity walk gives Ka Hale A ke Ola a chance to raise money, by recruiting sponsors and their donations for walkers.
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 the month of September, customers are encouraged to make a donation at Foodland to their favorite participating Hawaii non-profit organization. Each year, Foodland and the Western Union Foundation contribute more than $300,000 to match customer donations for all organizations combined. Since the program began in 1999, a total of more than $27.3 million has been raised for Hawaii’s charities.
