Hamai Appliance helps fight child hunger

Local retailer Hamai Appliance joined hundreds of other independently owned appliance and bedding dealers in Las Vegas recently to make strides in the fight against child hunger.

Hamai Appliance, a member of Nationwide Marketing Group, teamed with fellow retailers at the biannual PrimeTime buying show and convention, where members of its team joined efforts supporting No Child Hungry, the food distribution arm of charity My Neighbor’s Children.

At the event, Hamai Appliance was represented by CEO Clyde Hamai and President Bryant Hamai and his wife, Gail. The show began with a meal-packing blitz, where more than 87,000 meals for hungry children were packed in just 60 minutes. The effort continued across the following days of the convention, reaching a total of over 185,000 meals. Half the packaged meals were distributed locally in Las Vegas, with the remainder to be distributed in the coming months across the network of orphanages and areas of need as identified by No Child Hungry.

“Although we were not able to participate in the actual packing efforts, we all made monetary contributions to the No Child Hungry efforts, and have done so for every nationwide convention, since this worthwhile project was started several years ago,” said Clyde Hamai.
