The Japanese Cultural Society of Maui established the Ganbare Maui Community Recovery Fund to stand in solidarity with the people of Maui after catastrophic Aug. 8 wildfires that resulted in loss of life and significant damages in Upcountry and West Maui.

The Japanese in Hawaii, such as the community in the town of Lahaina, have deep historical roots that span generations of more than 150 years from the Gannenmono, the first Japanese contract laborers recruited in 1868. Historical churches and other places of worship, well-preserved documents and cultural traditions have turned into ashes. More important, generational homes and residents’ sense of place that define their identity are also lost in the flames. Thousands have been displaced, many are still missing, and the number of those who have perished rises each day as search and rescue continue.

During this difficult time as we mourn with family and friends, our spirit remains strong. We urge the Japanese community throughout the State of Hawaii, across the nation, and in the world to stand with us. We understand recovery will take years, but our resolve to never give up is firm.

This fundraising effort is dedicated to support recovery efforts, restoration programs and special initiatives in line with the preservation and perpetuation of Maui’s thriving Japanese culture and community. We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and if you wish to make a donation, go to jcsmaui.org. Checks may be sent to JCSM at PO Box 5090, Kahului, HI 96733. For inquiries, email jcsmhawaii@gmail.com.

JCSM will match the first $35,000 of funds raised.
