HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Lt. Gov. Sylvia Luke is teaming up with Hawaii groups to streamline Maui donation efforts on Oahu.

A donation management center opened Saturday in Hakuone at Kakaako Makai, where goods will be received, sorted, and stored until needed to be sent over.

Luke said Maui has received an outpouring of aloha, not only locally but from all over the world.

“This is what happens in our community when people are suffering, people are hurting, the community steps up and takes care of each other,” said Lt. Gov. Luke in a press conference on Tuesday.

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs and the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement are helping coordinate.
