VOAD member organizations mobilized to support survivors of recent floods and mudslides on O'ahu and Kaua'i.  For example Hawaii Foodbank is collecting and distributing food and water, 211 is taking in calls for assistance and making referrals, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief has mucked out flooded homes, The Salvation Army is providing meals and delivering supplies.


The best way to help survivors is to make a financial contribution to a recognized disaster relief organization, such as the members of Hawaii VOAD or Long-Term Recovery Fund.

Donating cash offers voluntary agencies the most flexibility in obtaining the most-needed resources and pumps money into the local economy to help businesses recover.

The Hawaii VOAD has established a Long-Term Recovery Fund to help needy survivors rebuild and recover from disasters in Hawaii.  Donations for this fund can be made via Pay Pal by clicking on the DONATE button below.

Southern Baptist Disaster Relief and Team Rubicon volunteers help with clearing debris after recent flooding in Maui's Iao Valley.

Unsolicited donations of goods are not needed.  Remember, it takes valuable resources and time to sort, package, transport, warehouse, and distribute goods, such as used clothing and household items. Cash donations allow agencies the most flexibility in obtaining the most needed resources.




Those interested in volunteering for future disaster response incidents are encouraged to register with Red Cross.
