Donations for Maui residents affected by fires being accepted online

Lahaina, Pulehu and Upcountry Maui Fires Combined Update No. 8, 7:45 p.m.: Hawaiʻi Community Foundation and Maui United Way are accepting online monetary donations to benefit Maui residents affected by fires.

 

The Hawaiʻi Community Foundation started a Maui Strong Fund to support residents affected by the wildfires, which firefighting crews continue to battle in Lahaina, Pulehu/Kīhei and Upcountry areas. Donations can be made at www.hawaiicommunityfoundation.org/maui-strong.

 

Maui United Way is accepting donations to its Maui Fire and Disaster Relief fund at https://mauiunitedway.org/disasterrelief.

 

While the verified donation sites can be used to make monetary donations, donations of non-perishable food, bottled water, hygiene items and blankets are being accepted at the War Memorial Complex from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday. Those wishing to donate should enter the complex through Kanaloa Avenue and drop off donations at the field on the left.

 

Donations of hot and perishable food cannot be accepted at the dropoff site.

 

After the donation site was set up in the late morning Wednesday, the line of vehicles dropping off donations was about a mile long. Semitrucks transported the food and supplies to shelter locations.

 

Shelters remain open at War Memorial Gymnasium in Wailuku, Maui High School in Kahului and Hannibal Tavares Community Center in Pukalani.

 

People trying to locate loved ones who may be impacted by the fires can call the American Red Cross hotline at 1-800-733-2767.
