In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Little Caesars helps support Oahu communities with food, jobs

Forming partnerships within the community

Sponsored by Little Caesars

It’s time for Pizza! Little Caesars is one of the largest pizza chains in the United States, and they pride themselves on giving back to the community. In December, the company is partnering with Brave Hawaii for a toy drive. HI Now host Jobeth Devera is with General Manager Dave Haragugi to learn more about the event.

“We partner up with anybody who’s in our community,” Haragugi says. He feels it’s important for local businesses and the community to form a partnership. When businesses help support the community, the community will help support the business.”

Little Caesars only keeps its pizzas for 30 minutes, after that, they’re donated to the community. For example, in Ewa Beach and Waipahu, Little Caesars donates food to Weed and Seed. In Waianae, the pizza chain helps with fundraisers for the Boys and Girls Club, donates to the harbor as well as to the firefighters who are keeping the community safe. Then in Wahiawa, Little Caesars helps support Ali’i Farms and Our Lady of Sorrows.

Its Kaneohe location supports Habilitat, an organization that helps people get back on their feet after drug addictions, with donations two times a week. Also on the windward side, Little Caesars works with the Koolau Club, an organization that helps those with mental disorders. “We have had several of these employees,” Haragugi says. “Many times they end up being some of our best employees!”

Little Caesars also gives teens jobs to help get them started in the workforce and start building their work ethic so they can find another job in the future.

If you want to participate in the toy drive for Brave Hawaii this December, just head to any Little Caesars location and bring a new toy to put in the donation box. Everyone who donates will even get a free order of Little Caesars’ delicious Crazy Bread!
