Maui Fires: Please Donate to Help Those Affected

The recent wildfires on the island of Maui have been devastating. Thousands of people have been displaced from their homes, and many have lost everything. The recovery effort will be long and difficult, but it is important to remember that the people of Maui are resilient. With your help, we can rebuild their communities and help them get back on their feet.

The May Family of Angle Lake are organizing an effort to collect gently used items for air shipment to assist in the Maui Fires recovery effort. Donations can be dropped off at Post #65, 4317 So. 188th Street. The front gate will remain open from 6:00 AM until 5:00 PM each day, until Tuesday, August 15th.

Sought After Items: Amazon Wishlist

  • Since they have no power - solar powered items such as charges and lights. 
  • Since they have no place to go - camping gear (tents, blankets, ect.) hammocks, pillows, ect. 
  • Since they left everything behind - clothes, shoes, toothbrushes, hairbrushes, body wipes, ect. for all ages
