Fundraiser benefits Hawaii Meals on Wheels

(KHNL) - For the past 30 years, the Hawaii Meals on Wheels program has delivered more than one million hot meals to more than 8,000 elderly and homebound individuals.

But providing that service takes cash, so next Thursday the organization is hosting a fundraiser to help keep those meals coming.

Joining us this morning to talk about the event is Claire Shimabukuru, executive director of Hawaii Meals on Wheels, and Lance Tanaka of Tesoro Hawaii.

The annual gala fundraiser "Meals from the Heart" is Thursday, September 24, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at The Willows Restaurant.
