The wildfires that blew through the historic town of Lahaina and adjacent communities on the island of Maui resulted in the greatest loss of life from wildfire within the U.S. in this century. The Pacific Disaster Center (PDC) estimates 5,500 households containing 13,700 individuals have been impacted, with more than $5.9 billion worth of damage to public & private buildings and infrastructure.
The Good360 Disaster Recovery Team is working directly with Hawai’i Emergency Management Agency, Maui Officials, FEMA Region IX, and Hawai’i VOAD and its member agencies to ground-truth product need gaps. At this time, all official messaging from local governmental and non-governmental partners is that Maui and adjacent islands continue to be overwhelmed with unsolicited goods and they ask that no additional items be sent unless specifically requested through official channels.
Good360 is working on Aloha (Love, Compassion, Mercy) Kits that will consist of kitchenware, household items, bedding, and other items that are needed to turn a hotel room into a longer-term housing solution.
We are also working with After the Fire USA, All Hands and Hearts, ISEA and Healthcare Ready to determine protective equipment needs to keep survivors and volunteers safe. Our Wildfire Recovery Kits will consist of relevant personal protective equipment.

We’ll be there in the early days with personal care items, supplies for shelters, and cleaning/mucking out products and we’ll be there long after the media spotlight has dimmed months and years later with furniture, mattresses, home goods and other necessities to help impacted communities through the recovery journey.
Our mission is to provide critically needed goods throughout all stages of a disaster. This means we’ll continue to provide support long after media interest fades.
