Surviving the Fires of Lahaina

Donation protected
Pat, Erna, and their daughter, Ercia, lost everything in the fires on August 8, 2023. The fires were sudden and engulfed the neighborhood. Small fires on homes and cars were everywhere. Black smoke rose in every direction. They managed to escape with only what they wore and the car they drove.

This family’s roots run deep in Lahaina town. Canuto Seatriz, Pat’s father, landed here in 1946 to work in the sugar cane fields. He dwelled in Lahaina Plantation camps with fellow immigrants harvesting cane. Pat, Erna and their families made it out with no injuries. They are grateful that everyone is here today. Pain, however, is still felt deep. They lost everything to the fire; pictures of family gatherings, videos of milestones and achievements, relics of trips and experiences, and a place they called home. During this time, any donation is appreciated to help rebuild a new place to call home.

Thank you for your kokua.
