Happy Aloha Friday everyone!
Eight more days until I’m back in Hawaii…and home sweet home. Yay!!! I’m excited to share with you about a great community organization located in Maui, Hawaii.
My husband and I have actually been working on developing a website & social media account to share about people and organizations in Hawaii that will help meet their needs. While we’re not quite finished with the project, this is a start and here’s a way you can help:
State Farm Neighborhood Assist is giving away $25,000 to the charity with the most votes…you can vote up to 10 times a day…I know the folks in Maui would totally appreciate your help through voting. Here’s a little bit about Feed My Sheep’s mission:
What is the mission of your cause?
People of the community working together to feed the hungry in body, mind and in spirit.
How would you use the $25,000 to address an unmet need in your community?
The sun and warm climate of Maui allows for an abundant year round growing season. Fresh local produce is available and this program will get it out to the community by purchasing off grade produce at discounted prices and by providing harvesters to glean the crops that would otherwise be plowed under. Feed My Sheep is working hard to develop a program that works with local farmers so that fruits and vegetables are accessible to those stricken by poverty on Maui. Acquiring healthy foods from local farmers will allow Feed My Sheep to take produce out into the areas of need in the community. By Loading up trucks with the help of volunteers, Feed My Sheep will take these nutritious foods to six (6) different locations island wide; five weekly, one monthly. $25,000 will provide over 50,000 pounds of fresh local produce to people in poverty on Maui giving them an opportunity to eat well and thrive.
And here’s a link where you can vote then share the link: VOTE FOR FEED MY SHEEP 10X DAY
Thank you so much for trying to make it an extra happy aloha Friday for the people in Maui. We need you more than you think.
