The Food Basket launches Giving Tuesday campaign

Hawaii Island’s Food Bank is gearing up to launch its #GivingTuesday campaign.

#GivingTuesday is an annual movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the holiday season. Each year, the day falls on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.

The Food Basket, using the not-for-profit fundraising platform Classy.org, will collect monetary donations to support the mission of feeding those in need on Hawaii Island.

On a monthly basis, The Food Basket serves 12,000 individuals through the support of the community.

Visit impact.hawaiifoodbasket.org to donate.
