County employees pitch in

LIHUE — With the end of April looming, activity bristled in the Moikeha Building Tuesday morning.

Cyndi Ayonon of the Mayor’s Office coordinated the tallying of contributions from county agencies for transport by the Kauai Independent Food Bank toward its Spring Food and Fund Drive.

The collection represented the county’s campaign toward the KIFB drive, which began at the beginning of March and is continuing through the end of April.

“I am very pleased that the county understands the Kauai Independent Food Bank and what it does in the community,” said Rowena Cobb, KIFB board president.

The county’s contribution amounted to $1,595 in monetary contributions, 4,385 pounds of rice, and 1,465 pounds of other nonperishable food for a total of $7,510.

“Congratulations to all of the county employees who contributed to the KIFB drive,” Ayonon said.

The KIFB Spring Food and Fund drive has a goal of $45,000 and 45,000 pounds of food.
