What's going on
LVHCC has converted our Club Donor item to a “Maui Relief Allocation.” This allocation will enable LVHCC to provide donations to credible organizations focused on full support for folks on Maui and for support occurring here in Las Vegas by organizations working to assist the Maui relief effort.
Click our “Donate” button and 100% of what we receive will be tracked and maintained separately from LVHCC funds for later donations.
To help the Lahaina and Maui Fire victims and survivors, click the Maui icon above.
The links that will come up are reputable locations from bona fide news reporting and trusted and knowledgeable sources (though as always, please be mindful of where you donate and try to give only to vetted organizations at trustworthy sites).
