How To Help Maui Fire Victims
By Doug Lazy on August 10, 2023
One of the deadliest fires in the U.S. in recent years is sweeping through Maui right now and here’s how you can help the victims…
Thousands of people are in shelters right now and dozens have died from the wildfires in Maui. The people there need our help. If you’re looking to help those impacted, here are a few options:
- Hawaii Gov. Josh Green’s office suggested donors give to the Hawaii Community Foundation and its Maui Strong Fund.
- The American Red Cross is also “providing shelter and comfort to those affected by the massive fires.”
- The Salvation Army is providing food and support for those affected.
- The Maui Food Bank is accepting donations, as each dollar received can buy four meals for those in need.
- The Maui Mutual Aid Fund is accepting donations to help families, elderly residents, people with disabilities and those with limited or no insurance.
- Aloha United Way’s Maui Relief Fund will help victims of the fire.
Unfortunately, scammers thrive during times like this so please be careful of who you donate to. Only donate to reputable charities that will put your money to work for the victims. And prayers to the people of Maui.
