Communicology Students and Faculty Compete for Hawaii Foodbank

According to the Hawaii Foodbank, there are people that have to choose between buying food and paying for everyday necessities, like housing, utilities, and medical care every month. You can help local people in need of food by donating to the Hawaii Foodbank today! Last year, the Hawaii Foodbank provided over 13.7 million pounds of food on Oahu and Kauai.

To aid in the Hawaii Foodbank’s efforts, the Communicology department will be collecting food and monetary donations. While we appreciate any donation, the most valued food items are canned proteins, meals, vegetables, fruits and bags of rice. Additionally, we will take any dollar amount for monetary donations. Keep in mind that just $10 will provide enough food for 25 meals, so every dollar counts.

To make things interesting, two groups within the Communicology department decided to hold a competition. Team COMG Students versus Team Faculty each decorated collection boxes using only materials from home and the office. When you donate, you may use your donation as a “vote” for the box you like best.

Please come down to take a better look!  One box is INTERACTIVE!  The other is WOOF-TASTIC!  The last day to vote is Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 3:00 PM.  Please come by and vote for your favorite box.

canned good = 1 vote

$1 = 1 vote

Bags of rice: 1 lb = 1 vote

You may vote for only one box or both boxes!
You may vote as often as you’d like!

Everyone who votes gets a green Food Drive flyer to post up on the bulletin board with their name on it. Those who vote with $10 or above will receive an orange Food Drive flyer.

Voting is open to the public, so please invite your classmates, family, and friends to donate to this great cause! Who do YOU think will win? #TeamCOMGstudents or #TeamCOMGfaculty?
