About

Devastating wildfires quickly spread through the Hawaiian islands of Maui and Big Island on August 9, 2023, leading to several deaths with thousands forced to evacuate their communities. Homes, businesses, and infrastructure have faced catastrophic damage, including historic Lahaina, and relief efforts are currently underway. The following organizations are providing shelter, food, clothing, medical care, support, and other necessary resources, and your donation to this Fund will help support these organizations to provide critical aid to the impacted communities.
