Exacerbated by strong winds, wildfires on Maui have claimed dozens of lives and have destroyed homes, businesses and lines of communication. The Big Island of Hawaii has also been impacted by wildfires, and more islands remain vulnerable to additional fires this season. Lutheran Disaster Response is coordinating with the Pacifica Synod and other partners to assess the needs of people impacted by the wildfires. Give now.

Thanks to generous donors, the North/West Lower Michigan Synod has committed $5000 in matching funds to all disaster response gifts for the Maui Wildfires that come through the Synod. Give now at https://www.mittensynod.org/donate/ and select NWLM Synod Disaster Relief from the dropdown menu.
