A Cup of Cold Water is urgently seeking volunteers and donations to aid families impacted by Mauiʻs devastating wildfires. Countless families are suddenly in the unsheltered community on Maui because they lost their homes and belongings in the fires.
How to help people in need:
Volunteer: Run leaders (drivers), run riders (distribution from van), supply room help (intake and packaging), and shoppers (to stock supply room) are needed.
A Cup of Cold Water President, Cathy Paxton-Haines, is coordinating the effort. Those interested in a volunteer role can call Cathy at 808-283-1952 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Donate Financially: Individuals can give a tax deductible donation to A Cup of Cold Water. As a 100% volunteer organization, every dime donated will go to help the unsheltered community of Maui, particularly those recently displaced from their homes.
