Support those affected by Hawaii wildfires
On August 8, wildfires broke out on the island of Maui in Hawaii. Flames were fueled by Hurricane Dora, which despite being offshore, still brought hurricane force winds to Maui and the Big Island.
As of August 14, Lahaina officials have stated that only 3% of the area has been searched and that the number of lives lost will increase. Hawaii Governor Josh Green also estimates that structural damage will be in the billions of dollars and that there will be broader economic impact, as more than half of island residents work in tourism.
We will continue to update this page as additional information and resources become available.
