IAM members and their families in Maui need your help to recover from the devastating wildfires in Maui.
Wildfires have devastated the island of Maui. According to CNN, the wildfires that ignited on August 8 have killed at least 111 people – including children – mostly around Lahaina, an economic and cultural hub obliterated by the infernos.
“Our thoughts are with our members, their families, and the entire Maui community as they deal with the devasting effects of the wildfires,” said IAM International President Robert Martinez Jr. “We hope that the community receives the necessary resources to help everyone get back on their feet. Our IAM Disaster Relief team is ready to assist with financial and other services needed to deal with this tragedy.”
The Disaster Relief Fund can provide immediate financial assistance to IAM members impacted by natural disasters. The IAM is often there before most monetary relief efforts can react.
All the donations made will be directly distributed to those who need it.
