VOAD RESPONDS TO RECENT STORMS
VOAD member organizations mobilized in the Fall for Tropical Storm Darby, Hurricane Madeline, Hurricane Lester and flooding on Maui. Current operations have concluded but you can still make contributions to support future recovery efforts.
The best way to help survivors is to make a financial contribution to a recognized disaster relief organization such as the members of Hawaii State Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (HSVOAD) or the VOAD Disaster Long Term Recovery Fund below.
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 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 are encouraged to register with Red Cross.
