Family Lost Their Home and Vehicle in Maui Fire

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Laura. I am starting this fundraiser to help my son and his family rebuild after losing their home to the devastating fire in Lahaina on August 8, 2023. My son Rob and his beautiful wife Michaellyn (born and raised on Maui), along with their 13 year- old son, their 8-year-old twin boys, and their 6 -year old son, fled their burning neighborhood with their 4 dogs and land turtle leaving behind the family guinea pigs and pet rabbits and all their belongings. They are safe and sheltering in Napili but this beautiful family and their community have lost everything and will need to rebuild their lives from scratch. We won't know the true loss of the Lahaina community until the fires are contained. Thank you in advance for helping this family rebuild.

Specifically, the funds will help the Burke Family with:

  • Clothing/Shoes for four children and two adults
  • Food and Water
  • Temporary Shelter/Housing
  • Dog Food and Supplies for four dogs
  • Toiletries
  • Costs to replace official documents, birth certificates, passports etc
  • School Supplies for four children
  • Trauma Care for the four children
