So many people have asked us what they can do to help victims of the devasting fires in Maui, which have so far killed more than a hundred people and left thousands homeless.
Here's how you can help.
Hawaii's Governor Josh Green suggests people give to the Hawaii Community Foundation and their Maui Strong Fund. This fund has raised over $34 million since the fires broke out and has already distributed over $4 million to more than two dozen local aid groups. The foundation has waived all donation fees, with 100% of funds going toward community needs.
Other giving Options
- American Red Cross is helping to provide shelter and comfort to those in need.
