As the pandemic continues to affect Island residents, The Salvation Army maintains its 140 weekly food services throughout Hawaii and the Pacific. On May 9, special food distribution opportunities, dubbed “Bundles of Love,” were offered for Mother’s Day.

In collaboration with Y. Hata & Co. Ltd. and Hawaii State VOAD, and with the support of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, The Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands hosted a total of four Mother’s Day weekend emergency drive-through food distributions on Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii Island, providing approximately 12,000 meals throughout the state.

On Oahu, the event was held at the Polynesian Cultural Center; Salvation Army Major Jeffrey Martin said the Laie location was chosen because North Shore residents have been severely impacted by the collapse of tourism in Hawaii.

Volunteers practiced safe social distancing by placing packages directly into car trunks. Each family’s bundle included produce; sirloin steaks and chicken; candy, crayons and activities for keiki; as well as a rose for mom.
