Joining KHON2 with the details is Lieutenant Governor Sylvia Luke.
Lt. Gov. Luke will talk about how the Kokua for Maui effort come about through support from all four of Hawaii’s county mayors.
November is the month of giving. Counties, state and community partners are coming together to give back and support our Maui ‘ohana and business owners.
But what makes this particular effort special? According to Lt. Gov. Luke, the event shows the unity and aloha of our islands.
“We are separate islands but together; we make up one family that supports one another during trying times,” said Lt. Gov. Luke. “Everyone wants to be there for Maui, and this is a way residents can support Maui from their own islands and give Maui vendors a wider customer base to support the recovery of their businesses.”
You are probably asking yourself how you can help support or how businesses can participate.
