I am the Advisor for the Maui United Young Buddhist Association.
The Lahaina Hongwanji Temple in Lahaina has burned down due to the disastrous fires that struck Maui on August 8.
The minister and his family managed to escape however with only 2 days worth of clothes. All their other belongings have burned along with the temple.
As our minister Advisor for the Maui United Young Buddhist Association, we are raising funds to support Rev. Ai Hironaka and his family.
They are currently sleeping on the floor of a Lahaina member's home and we would like to get them back on their feet as quickly as possible. And with the school year starting, they need to replace their supplies and clothes.
Please help in any way you can. All funds will be given directly to Rev. Hironaka and his family.
