McKenna effort reaches $1 million goal
Kailua auto dealer Mike McKenna says he has reached his $1 million goal in donations to Hawai'i schools. The donation campaign — in what has become known as the "Spirit of Giving to the Schools" program — provides a $100 cash donation for every new car sold by his dealerships.
Customers choose the school and the dealership then automatically sends the $100 check in the customer's name. The hundred-dollar checks — totaling more than $1,000,000 — have been received by 436 schools.
