With preparations for the October 4th gala underway, volunteers at Hoʻōla Nā Pua are thrilled to be partnering with various members of the community in anticipation of this annual event. This year, Hawaiian Values Food Company will be sponsoring the inaugural gala.
Chad and Stephanie Buck, Chief Executive Officer/Owner and Chief Financial Officer, respectively, of Hawaiian Values, have been longtime contributors to Hawaii’s community through their parent company, Hawaii Foodservice Alliance. Rated seventh in overall giving and first in in-kind donations by the Hawaii Business Magazine, Hawaii Foodservice Alliance has a history of generosity, in particular to various food banks and food pantries across the islands.
Recently, the Bucks have expanded their objectives with the advent of the Hawaiian Values line, which strives to make a difference locally by investing a portion of their profits back into Hawaii’s families, communities, land, and ocean. In the wake of Hurricane Iselle, the company sent thousands of pounds of ice and food for distribution to the residents of Puna. Here on Oahu, Hawaiian Values recently purchased school supplies for approximately 500 children of low-income families in a carnival-themed Kalihi outreach. Additionally, the company’s vision is to support fundraisers for 50 weeks out of the year, facilitating grass roots efforts such as beach clean-ups and other venues that pour back into the people and environment of Hawaii. With locations on Oahu, Kauai, the Big Island, and Maui, Hawaiian Values is extending the aloha throughout the islands.
In light of this mission, Hawaiian Values is excited to partner with Hoʻōla Nā Pua’s mission of providing a safe environment for Hawaii’s most vulnerable. Both organizations are committed to promoting the values of our local culture and to actively working towards a world where our keiki receive the care they need.
