Right now, the best way to help those affected by the Maui wildfires and support Maui is by supporting them with your wallet. The road to recovery for many residents who have lost their homes and businesses will not only be long, but extremely expensive. Fortunately, you can help Lahaina and West Maui residents by shopping from these local businesses, many of whom are donating portions or all of their proceeds from specific items and products to fundraisers aimed at helping those in need get back on their feet.
