2020 Silent Auction and Luncheon —raises over $9,500

Mahalo to all of our generous donors and the members and friends of the Outreach Committee for all of their work. Over $9,500 was raised for the Local Mission Fund.

2019 Grants —total $62,775

A total of 121 requests were received for review in 2019 from residents in need in communities throughout Maui County. A total of $62,775 was provided to individuals and families in need on Maui as well as Moloka'i. An effort continues to be made to "partner" with other church and community groups in responding to those in need.

The Director of the Aloha House Sober Living Program was invited to give a presentation at the September Outreach Committee meeting on the programs and services offered there.

Housing and utilities are a critical need for families as well as program fee assistance for individuals who are eligble to participate in the Maui Drug Program through Aloha House and the Sober Living Program. Financial resources are drawn from the Local Mission Fund of the church, a fund that relies on the committee's fundraising activities and the monetary donations of members and friends.

We receive calls and letters from those we assist with grants, as grant recipients are so very thankful for positive progress in their lives.
