The Salvation Army will offer assistance for Maui residents impacted by the recent Kona storm and flooding during an event at its Kahului facility from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Residents who have previously reported property damage to Maui County will be able to receive financial assistance at the event, provided their addresses match county or Red Cross damage assessment reports. Emotional and spiritual care will also be available at the event.
“In addition to offering these events for survivors, many in our communities also have been asking us how they can help those in need,” said Victor Leonardi, divisional director of Emergency Services & Safety for The Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division. “During emergencies, the best way to help is to provide monetary donations which allows the delivery of the exact relief supplies needed within a community. Plus, The Salvation Army uses 100 percent of all donations designated ‘disaster relief’ in support of disaster operations.”
Impacted residents are encouraged to bring their state-issued ID or driver’s license showing their correct address, as well as proof of residency if possible, such as a bill or official mail.
Those who have not yet reported damages should do so prior to Wednesday’s event by visiting or by calling 211 for assistance.
Anyone who is unable to attend the event and has already reported damage to the county should visit and complete the flood survivor form or call The Salvation Army Flood Relief Hotline at (808) 440-1811. Donations can also be made on the website.
The Salvation Army Kahului Corps is located at 45 W. Kamehameha Ave.
