Honolulu HomeLoans Donates Cash & Food to Hawaii’s Hungry

Honolulu HomeLoans Donates Cash & Food to Hawaii’s Hungry

Honolulu HomeLoans (HHL), Hawaii’s leading mortgage banker, donated $2,600 in cash plus 258 pounds of non-perishable food to the Hawaii Foodbank in the spirit of holiday giving. Generous staff gave $600 in cash plus food while parent company HHL Holdings made a $2,000 company contribution.

According to Hawaii Foodbank, 48 percent of client households reported choosing between paying for food and paying for housing in the past 12 months — and 28 percent of these households make the choice every month.

"In this season of giving there is no greater way we at HHL Holdings can show our allegiance with our community than a contribution to the Hawaii Foodbank," said Chason Ishii, President of HHL Holdings Inc. "I am extremely proud of the generosity demonstrated by our team as we support the efforts of families struggling with hunger."

The word comes from the verb root shiboru, "to wring, squeeze, press."
