what’s happening in Maui and ways to support.
If you have the means to share and give back financially, mutual aid is desperately needed for our displaced community members, but there are many non-financial ways we can show up in solidarity for our cultural assets like Lahaina.
- Encourage those with the means to give back financially to one of the organizations we’ve recommended here
- Look into supporting a Lahaina small business directly by donating to their Go Fund Me or purchasing from online fundraisers organized by their community members
- Ask your local library, school, and parent to add books about the cultural significance of Lahaina to their collection. The historic buildings and cultural properties of this place will be forever lost but their STORIES can live on through us.
- Stay on top of what’s happening and keep our local officials accountable in the months and years to come as the community will continue to need help to rebuild.
We will continue to refresh our resources page and blog as the latest needs are identified and updated but as always we welcome and appreciate conversation with our community on the issues that matter to us most.
*MAUI EFFORTS* We compiled this list through recommendations made by our community. Hundreds of businesses and organizations are contributing to the Maui relief efforts. This list does not include all of them.
*UPDATE* We are currently updating our website and some pages are still being worked on. Thank you for your patience. We can't wait to continue to update our resources page.
*SUBMIT* If you have any organizations or resources you'd like to share with us please submit your nominations here.
