Skyline Hawaii food drive collects almost eight tons

Skyline Hawaii and local residents collected 15,743 pounds of food and donated it to food banks on Maui and Kauai during the month of September.

Each September since 2015, Skyline Hawaii has its Kamaaina Month Food Drive, offering free zipline tours for Hawaii residents who present a state ID and bring in 10 cans of food to donate to the Maui Food Bank or the Kauai Independent Food Bank. On Maui, Skyline’s September 2019 food drive brought in 13,081 pounds of food, while on Kauai the total amount collected was 2,662 pounds.

“It is really a pleasure for us to be able to help bring in these much needed food items for the Maui and Kauai community, while offering a fun experience for local families to enjoy,” said Danny Boren, owner of Skyline Hawaii.

“With so many families across Hawaii struggling to make ends meet, we feel that supporting the Maui Food Bank and Kauai Independent Food Bank is a critical way to ensuring everyone in our community has access to healthy food no matter their financial circumstances. No one in Hawaii should need to worry about where their next meal is coming from, but unfortunately, that is the situation so many people find themselves in, and that’s where the food banks can help.”

Skyline Hawaii’s Kamaaina Month Food Drive has donated a total of 35 tons of food on Maui and Kauai since the initiative began in 2015.

As a member of 1% For The Planet, Skyline Hawaii has committed to giving at least 1 percent of all sales to environmental protection.
