The Hawaii Chamber of Commerce Foundation/Chamber of Commerce Hawaii is raising funds to assist the business communities on Maui, Hawaii Island and throughout the state of Hawaii, which are being impacted by the unprecedented wildfires. The fires tore through hundreds of acres on Hawaii Island and Maui, destroying businesses and homes. Historic Front Street in Lahaina, Maui, a major economic hub for the entire county, was engulfed.
