The County of Hawai‘i announces they are very grateful for the overwhelming generosity of the community towards distressed neighbors who have evacuated amid the eruption event.

However, the county asks you to refrain from dropping off any monetary, in-kind or food donations, including prepared food donations at the shelters.

The county is working with The Salvation Army and community/business partners to set up a donation distribution center in Puna. The location is to be determined.

The county understands and shares the desire to reach out to help, and you will be notified about the arrangements for the organized donations in the coming days by The Salvation Army.
