Aloha e ka ‘ohana o Haleakalā Waldorf School, 

At this devastating time, we send our heartfelt aloha to the island of Maui, to all its residents, and to everyone impacted by the recent horrific wildfire tragedies. We are grieving with all who are suffering during this difficult time, and yet the outpouring of people coming together to support,  kōkua, and offer comfort has been both inspiring and healing. There are many opportunities to assist: by donating funds, food, and supplies; by lending a helping hand; by being a good friend; and by praying in earnest for those in need. We are confident that you will find ways to express aloha and offer a compassionate response. Here are a few resources should it be helpful to you.

Please reach out to us if we can offer you additional support.

Me ke aloha pumehana, a me ka ha’aha’a,

Haleakalā Waldorf School Maui Wildfires Assistance Fund

Although the ramifications of the Maui County wildfires are still unfolding, one thing remains certain: the need for education services on our island has never been greater. In the wake of this disaster, there is a clear need in the community for financial assistance to support students affected by the fires in continuing to pursue educational opportunities. In response, Haleakalā Waldorf School has established the Maui Wildfires Assistance Fund to help members of our school and island community during this time of crisis. This fund is intended to provide direct assistance for students who have been impacted by the wildfires. Every contribution will help prevent profoundly negative consequences for these families. Please join us in supporting this effort.
