In September, Landmark Logistics Corporation announced it will donate $1,000 to Hawaii Foodbank for every game won by the University of Hawaii Football team this season. Landmark Logistics Corporation has committed to donating a minimum of $10,000, regardless of team performance, and is inviting local businesses to join the charge.
“We are huge supporters of UH football regardless of wins and losses, but this season could be a special one for Hawaii Foodbank thanks to Landmark Logistics Corporation, and a handful of other local businesses,” said Ron Mizutani, President and CEO of Hawaii Foodbank.
President and Executive Chairman Corey Correa reached out to other Hawaii business leaders to join the campaign and Pasha Hawaii, MIRA Image Construction, Mama Manoa, Kawika's Painting Inc. and Defend Hawaii immediately responded with different levels of commitment with every victory achieved by UH’s Rainbow Warriors.
With the current hurricane season underway and the damages caused by Tropical Storm Olivia and Hurricane Lane, Hawaii Foodbank is in need of food and monetary donations to aid victims of these natural disasters and to continue to meet the daily needs of Hawaii’s hungry residents.
"The Hawaii Foodbank really needs the community’s help right now and we as business leaders can make a difference in feeding Hawaii’s hungry,” said Correa. “My goal is to get as many local businesses across the state on board to participate with Landmark Logistics on this donation campaign. Whatever number a company can commit, $1.00 or $1,000 a win, helps.”
Don’t be surprised if cheers from local businesses are a little louder than usual as the as the Rainbow Warriors take on opponents this season.
“We are grateful for Corey’s initiative and we thank Pasha Hawaii, MIRA Image Construction, Mama Manoa, Kawika's Painting Inc., and Defend Hawaii for joining the campaign,” said Mizutani. “We hope as the Rainbow Warriors continue to win, other businesses will join us on this exciting ride. Each Hawaii victory will go a long way in helping us serve our mission of feeding Hawaii’s hungry.”
