Lahaina Times

On August 8, 2023, our country experienced the greatest wildfire disaster in decades.  Our beloved Lahaina Town was destroyed in the fire, as of this writing 99 perished.  Several thousand structures were destroyed including an elementary school, churches, historical buildings, a medical clinic and senior housing complexes.  On the slopes of Haleakala in Kuala, 15 homes were burnt to the ground and over 1000 acres were destroyed in the Upcountry area.  In Kihei, a wildfire leveled approximately 600 acres.  Many wildfires were happening at the same time, in West Maui, South Maui, and Upcountry Maui. Our first responders heroically fought the wildfires in Lahaina, but were overwhelmed.

The Maui Lions started an Incident Response Team, a task force to organize, plan, and communicate to support the local communities affected by the unprecedented wildfires.  Maui Lions are volunteering at the shelters, providing eyeglasses for people who lost them during the evacuation, providing Kama’aina Kids Day Care center with resources to nourish children affected by the fire, preparing food (shown above - University of Hawaii - Maui College, thousands of meals prepared daily in the aftermath), working with the Red Cross, Salvation Army, Hale Mahaolu Senior Housing and more.

The outpouring of support (financial, time, and service) by the Lions throughout our country has been tremendous.  (Excerpt from an article written by Lion Paul Seto of the Kahului Lions Club)

Mahalo from the Hawaii Lions, and for your continued support.

Maui Disaster Relief



Aloha All...Whenever disaster strikes, the Hawaii Lions Clubs are often among the first to offer relief.  The wildfires in Lahaina are so devastating, it's going to take a lot of resources and financial aid.  As the Lions on Maui work together with the county to send food, water, and medical supplies, they’re going to need monetary ability to help them mobilize.  Lions Clubs International will assist with their major disaster funding but with certain restrictions.  However with funding from the Hawaii Lions Foundation, our Lions have immediate use and are not as restricted.


We’re asking our Lions members, family, friends, and complete strangers to help support our cause to make a donation.

Open your hearts and give as much as you can.All donations are tax deductible.We'll be updating that page soon to reflect the Maui Disaster Relief. The Lions Eye Bank Hawaii (LEBH) is part of the Hawaii Lions Foundation (HLF) and donations through LEBH go directly to the HLF.  Simply scan the QRC code and it will take you to the donation page.
