Donation & Volunteer Opportunities

Contribute Funds Instead of Supplies
Officials in Maui County currently advise anyone not located on the island of Maui to contribute funds instead of supplies. Monetary donations allow local organizations to secure and distribute needed resources. Avoid shipping donated goods to Maui at this time.

Maui self-deployment should be avoided: The island has limited space and congested roads. If you have inquiries about making substantial donations of goods or services, please contact the following individuals for coordination:

  • HIEMA:
    Phone: 808-733-4300
    Email: HawaiiEMA@hawaii.gov or john.a.vierra@hawaii.gov
  • RED CROSS:
    Register as a volunteer. Please note that this involves an application, background check, and training. Start the process now so you can volunteer ASAP. It is possible to streamline your application by visiting 95 Mahalani Street Conference Room #3 Wailuku, HI 96793 — Building 5.

Please Remain Vigilant About Fraud.

Disasters can attract those looking to take advantage. Watch out for scams, unsolicited messages, or requests for personal/financial info. If you notice anything suspicious, contact FEMA Investigations and Inspections Division: Email – StopFEMAFraud@fema.dhs.gov, Phone – 866-223-0814.
