Many of you are aware of the tragic and devastating fires that have ravaged Maui and the town of Lahaina this week. FirefighterAid has managed to make contact with several of our own SDFD (active and retired) who are currently on the island of Maui. We have received reliable reports of Maui Firefighters, and their family members, who have suffered burn injuries and lost their homes while fighting the fires themselves. Our mission at FirefighterAid is to support Firefighters and their families in a time of need, and we can not think of a more appropriate time than now to assist. 100% of all donations to this campaign will provide immediate financial assistance to active duty Maui Firefighters for their recovery due to the devastating fires of August 2023. Funds will be used to provide assistance with food, shelter accommodations, healthcare costs and other relatable services that directly supports the recovery of loss incurred due to Maui wildfires. Money will be distributed directly to active duty firefighters via Maui FD Firefighters Local 1463.
"Not only did the FirefighterAid help my family while I was in a coma, they helped me recover back to my job with full, caring support. No one knows what the FirefighterAid is truly capable of until you are in real need for help. I can not imagine my recovery with out them. YOU GUYS ARE ANGELS. THANK YOU!...."
"Lakeside Fire Protection District would like to thank you for your exceptional guidance during the recent tragic passing of Firefighter / Paramedic Corey Palmore. The promptness with which you contacted us ensured we did not miss a single step in the processes we would have to negotiate that week...."
