2023 Vocational Sponsorships

We are supporting vocational tradespeople directly affected by the recent Lahaina/Upcountry Maui Fires. Our intention is to assist in the replacement of tools and/or devices essential to one’s vocation or trade that were lost or damaged beyond repair in the fires. These items would be considered necessary to perform one’s trade and one would not be able to continue within their profession without replacement of these specific items. Examples of such vocations include but are not limited to: Electricians, Plumbers, General Construction, Hair Stylists, Pet Groomers, Artists, Automobile Repair Technicians, Technology Specialists, Massage Therapists, Agricultural Workers, and Landscapers. The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise (RCLS) reserves the right to approve the sponsorship of any vocation.
We have 15 (Fifteen) Vocational Sponsorships up to $750.00 each to replace essential items. Upon approval from RCLS, recipients of this vocational sponsorship program will be notified that they will receive the tools and/or supplies as requested. All items will be purchased directly by The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise and shipped or delivered directly to recipients. Additional details to be provided on upon acceptance.
Applications must be postmarked by October 16, 2023 and sent to address below OR scanned and emailed to RotaryClubofLahainaSunrise@gmail.com to arrive no later than midnight October 20, 2023.

Maui Fire Relief Fund


From Hawai'i Rotary District Governor Mark Merriam:

August 9, 2023 was a tragic day for our Rotarians, families and friends on the Island of Maui. The fires across the island have changed lives forever. Truly devastating. Our sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted.

As people of action, we can take immediate action. As we come together to recover and rebuild, we need to support each other. We need to Create Hope for Maui.

Through our Rotary District 5000 Foundation, a relief fund has been established. Foundation President Dave Hamil and Treasurer Sharon Amano will handle all donations. A committee will be organized shortly to find the greatest needs for distribution of monies. A single fund will be the most helpful over time to provide the most significant benefits.

Mahalo to the Rotary Club of Waikiki for collecting monies at their lunch meeting today. These are the first contributions to the fund.

Please also widely share this opportunity to help.

Stay safe, take care and mahalo for creating hope.
