Farmers Insurance Presents $24,623

Farmers Insurance Hawaii was pleased to present more than $24,600 and 9,000 pounds of food recently to three local nonprofit food-assistance organizations as a result of the company’s successful “Drive Out Hunger In Hawaii” campaign. This year, the campaign coincided with Hunger Action Month, a national initiative to raise awareness about the problem of hunger. The monthlong campaign involved a food and monetary drive as well as volunteer efforts to benefit Hawaii Foodbank, Lanakila Meals on Wheels and River of Life Mission.
