My name is Cherry Respicio Urias, the Controller and sometimes Personal Assistant to Chef Joey Macadangdang and his Family.
Funds from this GoFundMe campaign will go directly to our Joey's Kitchen Whalers, Joey's Kitchen Napili, and Macadangdang staff and their families - who have been impacted by the wildfires Lahaina, Maui.
Like many Lahaina residents, many of our team members have lost absolutely everything. Leaving behind the comforts of their homes, filled with memories, and years of life - making it out with only the clothes on their backs. Chef Joey and his family will be opening up their homes to provide temporary housing to our team, while they begin to access and rebuild.
We understand that everyone is in the same boat, but truly anything would help.
We also understand that there are several fundraising campaigns currently circulating - please consider also donating to our campaign and find comfort that it will go directly to Chef Joey's employees.
Our Lahaina community is going through some of the most difficult times and the road to recovery will be a challenging one. We just hope that we can do our part to help our dedicated, hardworking employees at Joey's Kitchen Whalers, Joey's Kitchen Napili, and Macadangdang Restaurant.
If you could be so kind as to donate and share with your friends, families, and social media we appreciate the efforts.
Mahalo and Salamat Po,
Chef Joey Macadangdang and Family
