Mahalo Hawai'i Island for Shopping, Buying and Donating points to your favorite Hawai'i Island Schools
at KTA Super Stores between Aug. 9 - Sept. 19, 2017
KTA shoppers accumulated points for Hawai‛i Island schools by purchasing designated products from Kraft Heinz, Nabisco, Natural Directions, Hawaiian Sun, Kimberly-Clark, Frito Lay, Hershey, Pepsi, Hawai‛i Food Service Alliance, ConAgra Foods, Banana Boat and Kellogg’s. They earned one point for each product purchased to designate to their favorite Hawai‛i Island school.
Schools also earned additional points by "Volunteering Kokua for your Community" with The Food Basket or Recycle Hawaii.
How it works:
- The Food Basket – Each can of food donated to The Food Basket equals one Kokua I Na Kula Point
- Recycle Hawai‛i – Each piece of discarded mylar (shiny plastic candy wrappers, chip bags, etc) redeemed for recycling equals one Kokua I Na Kula point.
Last year’s program resulted in over 3,000 recycled mylar packages and multiple canned food drives held by schools.
Final Kokua i Na Kula point standings and percentages will be announced in November and the total funds will be awarded to schools in January 2018.
