In August 2023, the Hawaiian island of Maui was hit hard by wind-driven wildfires, causing widespread damage and destroying the town of Lahaina. The devastating fires have taken numerous lives, destroyed homes, properties, forced evacuations and displaced thousands of residents.
In solidarity with the people of Hawaii, ROOTS and the Native Hawaiian Religious Group at San Quentin are holding a month-long fundraiser and hygiene drive to assist the victims of the fires.
Those who wish to donate can contribute new, unopened hygiene items, or submit a trust account withdrawal slip (minimum $5 donation) to the Trust Office.
Hygiene donations will be collected in the housing units by incarcerated volunteers from ROOTS and the Native Hawaiian Religious Group on Fridays. All donations will be final on October 27.
Thank you for your support and contributions!
