Puna Baptist Church
The church is coordinating efforts around laundry for those displaced by the volcano eruptions on Hawaii Island. Liliuokalani Trust provided washers and dryers and a local laundromat is providing discounted services. The churches are providing detergent and will distribute vouchers to be redeemed at the laundromat. The grant will cover the cost of the vouchers.

Photos like the daughter of Kanani Kealoha, a youth staying at the overflow shelter near Pāhoa field. Her mother, Kanani is a single mother of 4 children. They reside in Seaview Estates & the air quality became too harsh for them to stay. In addition, the uncertainty of the cracks on HWY 130 would isolate them with no access out of Kalapana. Now, the family is working with HOPE to find long-term housing options.

The Food Basket
The Food Basket has received quadruple the usual number of donations of food and supplies and has been making daily deliveries of food to the Puna community following the Kilauea eruption. A grant from the Hawaii Island Volcano Recovery Fund will provide funding for a warehouse coordinator, part-time volunteer coordinator and part-time driver for a period of two months, as well as gas for the 40-mile round trip daily deliveries.
