    How to contribute to Mutual Aid Fund donations

    In organizational theory, mutual aid is a voluntary mutual exchange of resources and services for mutual benefit.

    The Maui Mutual Aid Fund is officially operational and has been reactivated following past disasters. The link is available via the @nrhugs Instagram profile or via the fire relief efforts link here to reach Maui Mutual Aid and donate to Grants Central Station.

    The project raises funds, communicates needs and kokua’Ohana is the most needy who would otherwise not be eligible for support or have difficulty accessing it. The organization strives to help those affected as quickly and directly as possible.

    Demand lists and drop-off locations are posted on the site and reportedly updated regularly on their social platforms.

    Supporters are encouraged to follow the following Instagram accounts: @nrhugs @carterohana @missvoguehogue And @mauirapidresponse along with the following Facebook groups: Maui Fire, Flood, & Disaster Relief Group.

    If you are an ohana in need, you can directly send a direct message to one of the sites. There you will learn how to access and advocate for services so that you can get the things you need as quickly as possible.

    The team is made up of volunteers who have been responding to emergencies like this neighbor-to-neighbor on Maui for more than a decade.

    Maui Rapid Response is a citizen disaster response team based in Ahupua’a.

    Currently, as the Citizen Response Team, they are doing their best to assess needs, engage with neighbors, and mobilize long-term in Hawaii.

    For those in need and those who wish to contribute support, you can coordinate, pool and sustain these efforts by completing and sharing this form.

    It’s made clear that you don’t need a Google account to fill out the forms, and the team encourages everyone to share news of the Help far and wide.

    The Prayers for the Maui Wildfire feature is supported by donations from food banks and the Mutual Aid Fund to support disaster relief efforts for the catastrophic fire-hit volcanic island, first appearing on HITC.
