California Visitors Deliver Holiday Joy to the Food Bank
A couple visiting Maui from California recently asked if they could visit the Food Bank. Steve and Samantha are well known for their generosity. Last year they paid off roughly $30,000 in layaway merchandise at a big box store near Memphis, so that 135 families could have gifts for their loved ones during the holidays.
The Brysons initially intended to make a $5,000 donation to the Food Bank, but doubled that after finding out about the Aloha BackPack Buddies program. The program provides a backpack with six meals for food insecure students, so they have nutritious meals over the weekend.
