Lahaina Maui Hawaii church congregation wildfire disaster GoFundMe
At OldSoftware.com we normally
don't actively promote fundraising causes even though we do encourage
our customers to support worthy causes. However, the recent horrible
fires in Maui Hawaii (particularly in Lahaina) is an exception.
The destruction there and loss of life has devastated nearly the
entire city of Lahaina. Additionally, a very close relative of
ours (and his wife) have both served as church missionaries in
Lahaina for around 6 months each year for about the past ten years.
These close relatives of ours happened to be here in the Salt
Lake City area when the awful fires hit Maui and were not hurt.
Their Lahaina residence (on the outskirts of Lahaina) was also
fortunately spared. However, they had both become very good friends
with many people in Maui-- both in their Lahaina church congregation
as well as in other venues in Maui. This close relative of ours
(and his wife) have taken it upon themselves to try to coordinate
relief efforts for their church congregation who had 41 families
have their homes or apartments destroyed by the horrible fire
and also suffered 1 death.
We strongly encourage
you to view the recent television link below to become aware of
this effort. Then, if possible, consider donating to the GoFundMe
account which they have established for the purpose of raising
money for those 41 families in their Lahaina congregation who
have lost their homes and apartments.
