When I introduced myself to Erik Walter, store manager of Office Max on Makalapua Blvd. in Kailua-Kona, I asked if OfficeMax would be the Print Sponsor for the Big Island Chocolate Festival. We have so many BICF items to print — signs, programs, "People's Choice Award" ballots, banners and more — and every bit of money we can save goes to our five beneficiaries. Erik said "yes" right away.
The next time you shop at OfficeMax, please let Erik and his staff know how glad you are that they're supporting the community as much as the community supports them.
