Maui Fire Donation Centers and Charities

Mālama Lāhainā

In the heart of paradise, Maui and the Big Island in Hawaii have been deeply affected by wildfires over the past two days. Fueled by the winds from Hurricane Dora, what began in the islands’ natural vegetation rapidly spread, tragically reaching towns such as the historic Lahaina. Many homes and businesses were engulfed in flames, leading some heartbroken residents to seek refuge in the sea, a desperate attempt to escape the fire’s wrath.

The County of Maui has sorrowfully reported that the fires have claimed at least 36 precious lives. Our thoughts are with the affected families and the entire community during this challenging time.

This page provides information on how individuals can assist in the Maui relief and recovery process following the devastating fires. We list various organizations and initiatives where monetary donations can be made, such as the Aloha United Way’s Maui Relief Fund, the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement, and the Hawaii Community Foundation Maui Strong Fund.

Also, find details on drop-off locations for community goods, specifying the items needed and the addresses of the drop-off points.
