Makana O Ke Akua (MOKA) partners in the Maui Relief effort with Council For Native Hawaiian (CNHA), Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA), Hawai‘i Foodbank, the County of Maui, and the Lieutenant Governor’s office. In addition to collecting and distributing supplies, MOKA also needs to raise funds to purchase additional critical supplies. The Honolulu warehouse is hosting a special shoe shopping event on October 14 from 9-12. All types of shoes will be for sale for $1 and up—CASH ONLY. All money raised will be used to purchase needed laundry supplies for those impacted by the wildfires on Maui. They could also use some volunteer help to run the event.

Volunteers needed for ongoing Maui relief efforts
At Maui Relief Facilities on Oʻahu and Maui, donations are collected from the community, corporations, and from the continent. Donations are sorted and distributed from their Kahului warehouse directly to ʻohana impacted by the fire and to others who have suffered the rolling effects from the fires. They also serve the Kahana Gateway Hub with food, water, and supplies. Finally, they serve the Upcountry Ohana Strong Hub with items other than food and water.
- Honolulu volunteers are needed Monday-Saturday at their 31,000 sq ft warehouse, Maui Relief Storage Facility (200 Keawe St).
- Maui volunteers are also needed at their Central Maui Relief Distribution Facility in Kahului (170 E Kamehameha Ave), located in the old Safeway.
