News: FOOD BASKET receives first check FROM LEX to FEED BIG ISLAND FAMILIES - 06/02/2011

Lex Brodie's Tire of the Big Island was happy to present the FOOD BASKET-Hawaii Island's Food Bank, their first check last month. We recently partnered with the FOOD BASKET to help them feed the growing number of families needing assistance with food. For every tire we sell at Lex Brodie's, we have committed to donating $1 to the FOOD BANK. We were excited to present them a check for $2011!  That will add up to 18,000 lbs. of food that will get prepared into meals for our hungry residents across the Big Island.
At a FOOD DRIVE last year in Keauhou, Executive Director-Nani Lee was expressing concern about the drop in donations due to the economy. "When times get tough, monetary & food donations are less, but the need for food rises", said Nani. "And it's especially hard to see the growing number of kids who turn out for our Soup Kitchens each week."  

Lex Brodie's-Big Island wanted to get involved with our Big Island communities in a meaningful way, so it was a unanimous decision among our Operating Managers to choose the Food Basket as our non-profit to support, especially after hearing  Nani's growing concerns.  Every little bit counts and it feels good knowing that we were able to help in such a positive way. And to all our customers who have purchased tires from us, we say....Thank You... Very much!

Aloha.... Anita : )
