On Saturday, October 3rd, Kukui Grove Center will in partnership with Kaua`i Independent Food Bank host the 2015 Holiday Kick-Off Food Drive from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. The goal of the Food Drive is to raise $40,000 and 40,000 pounds of food.
"We are honored to partner with Kaua'i Independent Food Bank, this is a great opportunity for Kukui Grove Center and the community to help those in need during the holiday season. Now more than ever, we all need to work together and provide the basic life necessity of food to all of those in need," said Wade Lord, General Manager of Kukui Grove Center.
Kukui Grove Center will donate $1 per can that is donated, and give up to $1,500 in total. Dow AgroSciences will also provide 3,000 pounds of food for the drive. Another fun part of the event is that the team that collects the most will win a pizza party for their entire team.
The Food Drive will last from October 1 - December 31, 2015, and this will help Kaua`i families this holiday season.
