After the fires that took place on Maui on August 8th, Pacific Whale Foundation did not hesitate to help our affected community. Knowing that the recovery process was going to be long, the outreach team was created. A carefully selected group of individuals from within the organization focused on supporting the community’s needs, prioritizing frontline relief. We operated our ʻOhana center hub for two months. Every day we reassess where we can make the largest impact. In late 2023, our focus shifted to supplying the community hubs with specifically requested supplies.

Highlighted Metrics:
  • To date we have delivered over 26,722 items.
  • Provided 1,129 gallons of water to homes that do not have safe drinking water, this equates to 8,551 plastic water bottles saved.
  • Collaboration with PWF’s education team allowed us to provide educational pop-up at hubs that had a higher number of Kamaliʻi (children).
  • Over 700 people attended our For Da Keiki events.
  • Pacific Whale Foundation is proud to announce your generous donations have allowed $300,000 in financial contributions to be donated to Treecovery ($75,000), Lahaina Community Land Trust ($100,000), Lahaina Restoration Foundation ($75,000) and Maui Rapid Response ($50,000).

It is our kuleana (responsibility) as an organization that has been on Maui for over 43 years to support Maui and to give back to this lāhui (people).
