King's Hawaiian Project Mahalo Charity Check Presentation
Before becoming a librarian, I worked in non-profit organizations including Los Angeles-based food service provider Project Angel Food. I know firsthand the importance of corporate donations to keep the doors open and to continue valuable services. It was rewarding to see family-owned King's Hawaiian shared their profits with worthy organizations.
The four charities in Project Mahalo were: Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, Family Caregiver Alliance, Meals On Wheels and One Warm Coat Representatives from each charity spoke about the valuable work they do to help feed, clothe, mentor and care for others. The winner of the $25,000 donation was Meals on Wheels, and the other organizations received $10,000. I know they'll use the funds to continue their important work.
before, but jumped at the chance to go on it again. You can see the famous King's Hawaiian rolls in the oven! Did you know little rolls are placed in the oven-safe paper box, proofed and baked in the box? I saw it all happening.
King's Hawaiian Restaurant and Bakery in Torrance - have you been? The restaurant is very family friendly, and the bakery is awesome.

Thank you very much King's Hawaiian for a fun day and a chance to learn about the great work by the four charities.
P.S. If you are grilling for Father's Day this weekend, get some King's Hot Dog buns and Hamburger buns. These are sooooo good!
