Goodfellow Bros. Unites with Maui Community to Support Families in Need

On October 12th, GBI’s GoodDeeds team had the privilege of participating in the Maui Ohana Resource Fair at The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, Ka’anapali. The Westin has graciously hosted numerous families who were displaced due to the Maui wildfires, providing a safe haven during their difficult times.

The resource fair, organized jointly by the Department of Education and the Department of Health, was a collaborative effort involving various state agencies and community organizations. It was a remarkable show of support for the affected families, showcasing the unity within the community.

For the GBI GoodDeeds team, this event marked a significant milestone as it was the first time that all our Hawaii operations came together for a charitable cause. Our collective effort was focused on collecting 500 backpacks filled with art supplies and sensory toys. These items were chosen with great care to support the emotional well-being of Maui’s keiki (children).

The GBI Maui Region provided much-needed support with the pickup and distribution of materials. Our corporate office in Wenatchee, WA, also pitched in with beautiful hand-stitched quilts donated by the North Central Washington Quilt Guild, graciously shipped to The Westin on Maui with the help of the Hawaiian Airlines Malama Maui program.

The event was a reminder of the strength of a community and the capacity for kindness to shine through, even during challenging times. Together we are Maui Strong!
