Monies gathered will be contributed to the Hawaii Community Foundation Maui Strong Fund, which is supplying the resources required to help with catastrophe reaction and healing. To kickoff the effort, HBA is contributing $25,000 to the fund.

Our employees, customers and families call these communities home, and we are committed to helping them recover and rebuild,” HBA President Bryan Luke stated. “By bringing our network of branches together, we hope to make it easy for those wanting to help our neighbors on Maui by providing a secure option to donate.”
