The recent wildfires on Maui, Hawaii have cost the lives of at least 106 with the death toll likely to rise. The needs on the ground are dire, serving evacuees and many who have lost everything – their homes, their pets, and their possessions. Please find below some giving opportunities to organizations providing aid and relief.
Hawai’i Community Foundation (HCF)
The Maui Strong Fund was created to provide community resilience with resources for disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. The fund is currently being used to support communities affected by the wildfires on Maui.
Jewish Federations of North America
JFNA has launched the Hawaii Wildfire Fund to provide the essentials to those affected by the fires. Not only is support needed in Maui, but people are fleeing to Honolulu where Jewish communal organizations will be working to support those in need.
The Jewish Congregation of Maui
The synagogue is open for shelter and accepting donations of emergency supplies. The synagogue is on the other side of a north-south highway and therefore not subject to evacuation.
Chabad of Maui
The Rabbi shared that they are in the evacuation zone, about two miles from the fire line and that volunteers are standing by, ready to get Torah scrolls and other Jewish ritual objects out of the building, if needed. They are accepting donations for aid and support on their website.
Maui Food Bank
The Maui Food Bank has set up a Disaster Relief fund to support those in need. With every $1 donated, they can provide 4 meals to the hungry living in their island community. Give now and together you can make a difference!
