Maui Wildfires Disaster

Aid Hawaii Wildfire Victims

Wildfires broke across two Hawaiian Islands on August 9, 2023. 55 people have died from the wildfires and thousands of residents are displaced from their homes. Lahaina, a historic whaling village on Maui, has been decimated. Hawaii continues to evacuate thousands of visitors, providing shelter, medical care, and food.

Here are some ways to help those devastated by the wildfires:

Hawai'i Community Foundation: Maui Strong Fund was created to provide community resilience with resources for disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. This fund is currently being used to support communities affected by the wildfires on Maui.

Hawaii Salvation Army: Providing meals for thousands displaced. All money donated for disaster relief will go to disaster operations.

Maui Food Bank: Providing food to thousands displaced

Maui Humane Society: Pet shelter and supplies
