Allied Universal Launches GoFundMe Page for Families of Maui Wildfire Victims
GoFundMe page has raised almost $50,000 for the families of Allied Universal employee who died and others who need post-wildfire assistance.
Allied Universal employees have created a GoFundMe page to “provide immediate short-term financial assistance” to the families of an employee who was one of the victims of the Maui wildfires and other Maui-based employees who need help with housing, transportation and other unanticipated costs.
So far, the GoFundMe effort has raised almost $50,000. The fundraiser has a goal of $150,000.
In addition to the Allied Universal employee who is confirmed to have died, others remain unaccounted for, according to a company announcement.
“We are hopeful they are safe and every effort is being made to contact them,” the announcement says.
Allied Universal is “working to get much-needed supplies, grief counseling and additional support to team members – some who lost loved ones, their homes and their modes of transportation yet have continued reporting to work each day to safeguard their island community,” according to the company announcement.
“Our thoughts go out to the victims, survivors, their loved ones, the 29 customers we serve on Maui, the island’s community and the entire state of Hawaii,” the announcement says.
More than 100 people have been confirmed dead in the aftermath of the Lahaina wildfires.
