Ahipoki partners with Childhelp to raise over $6,000

Childhelp partnered with Ahipoki to raise funds for the prevention and treatment of child abuse in honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month, raising a total of $6,107.81.

Patrons of the restaurant donated in-person at Ahipoki’s locations and online throughout April. More than $5,100 was raised at registered, and leaders at Ahipoki contributed a match of $1,000.

Ahipoki operates 22 locations across California and Arizona, with Valley locations in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, Gilbert, Chandler, Avondale and Queen Creek. The restaurant has a focus on health-conscious California-inspired seafood with a south pacific flair.

“Corporate partners and their valued customers coming together to support a worthy nonprofit...what’s not to love about this?” Childhelp director of corporate development Elaine Elliott stated in the release. “We are so thankful for the many who support our mission and want to make life better for the children who rely on us.”

Funds raised from this campaign helped support Childhelp’s several brick-and-mortar programs in California and Arizona, as well as the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline and the abuse prevention curriculum Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe.

“Children are a precious resource in our community, and the best way to improve the future outlook of our community is to invest in helping them,” Christine Holtz, director of marketing for Ahipoki, stated in the release.

Local programs available to Arizonans include the Childhelp Children’s Center of Arizona, Childhelp group homes, the Childhelp Merv Griffin residential treatment village and the Childhelp Foster Family Agency of California.

“This past April, we at Ahipoki were thrilled to support Childhelp, our nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit dedicated to the prevention, intervention and treatment of child abuse and neglect," Holtz stated. "Ahipoki customers showed their support, too. Together, we raised more than $6,100 for this worthy cause.”
