A new month, a new organization to team up with! For the whole month of October, the Fleet Gift Shop will be collecting non-perishable food donations for the organization, Second Harvest.
Okinawa has a very high poverty rate compared to other prefectures, and there are many people in need of food. Second Harvest is constantly working to connect food companies with individuals in need and we are happy to help.
Throughout the month of October, please bring in non-perishable food items, specifically: miso paste, canned mackerel, canned pike, and rice to the Fleet Gift Shop. Please do not bring items with cooking instructions in English. We want to thank our generous customers of the Fleet Gift Shop and we are excited, yet again, to get involved in our community here in Okinawa!
For information on Second Harvest and their impact in our community, please check out their website.
