First Hawaiian Launches Aloha for Hawai‘i, Supports Restaurants and Nonprofits
First Hawaiian Bank today announced the launch of its “Aloha for Hawaiʻi” initiative, a special program that offers support to Hawaiʻi restaurants and provides up to $1 million in donations to the Aloha for Hawaiʻi Fund, which has been established to support non-profits with food supply and health and human service programs for those impacted by COVID-19.
FHB’s goal is to generate one million takeout order transactions at restaurants across Hawaiʻi and it plans to donate up to $1 million to local nonprofits as a part of this initiative.
All you need to do to participate is use any FHB debit or credit card to purchase a takeout meal in Hawaiʻi. Each time your card is used at any Hawaiʻi restaurant, First Hawaiian Bank will make a donation on your behalf to the Aloha for Hawaiʻi Fund that supports the charities listed below. There’s no need to keep track of your receipts.
The $1 million donated to the Aloha for Hawaiʻi Fund will support local non-profits who are standing up food supply and health and human service programs that are critical to the community during this health and economic crisis. Generating $1 million takeout meal orders has the ability to produce millions in revenue for the restaurant industry, helping restaurant workers, distributors, farms and other vendors who are dependent on our restaurant orders to stay in business.
“Our community is known for its ability to come together in times of need,” stated Bob Harrison, First Hawaiian Bank Chairman, President and CEO. “Aloha for Hawaiʻi is a way for everyone to come together and support their favorite restaurant and the organizations that help those who are being impacted most by this pandemic.”
The Aloha for Hawaiʻi Fund supports the following non-profits:
Blood Bank of Hawaiʻi
Child and Family Service
Feeding Hawaiʻi Together
The Food Basket – Hawaiʻi Island’s Food Bank
Hawaiʻi Meals on Wheels
Kauaʻi Independent Food Bank
Mauʻi Food Bank
