Aloha HRYF Ohana!
I hope your Rotary year is progressing well, and that HRYF will again play a meaningful role in the Community and Youth Service avenues of your Club giving efforts.   
This morning, HRYF Administrator Tina and I were privileged to gather at the Ala Moana Foodland, along with representatives from Foodland’s “Together We Give” Program (“TWG”) beneficiaries, at the invitation of Jenai Sullivan Wall and Roger Wall, to receive our checks, and explain to the group who we are and what we do.  Present were the heads of The Red Cross, The Hawaii Foodbank, The Hawaii Blood Bank, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and….HRYF!
Foodland’s TWG Program prompts customers at checkout to donate to Foodland’s beneficiary, via a straight donation, or by rounding up their purchase.  HRYF was a designated TWG charity in July, and again this month (September).  Jenai presented us with a check for $22,071.57 (see attached) for July donations.
Please forward this email to your membership, and ask them to forward to potential donors, and let’s continue to grow HRYF, enabling the continuation of HRYF’s mission, and founder Sully Sullivan’s vision (Jenai’s dad), of providing scholarships for Hawaii’s best and brightest HS seniors to help offset college tuition costs.
Mahalo piha and Aloha!
Yours in HRYF,     
HRYF President
