Destructive, deadly wildfires along Maui’s western coast in Hawaii ripped through towns such as Lahaina last Tuesday, demolishing historic landmarks and charring some 3,000 homes and commercial buildings. At least 99 people have been pronounced dead, but officials say that number will likely climb during the coming weeks as recovery efforts continue across the island. Total damage has been estimated at a staggering $6 billion, according to the Hawaii governor’s office.

In response, the Realtors Relief Foundation (RRF) is donating $1.5 million in disaster aid to the Hawaii Realtors association to support devastated communities with housing assistance for displaced victims, the National Association of Realtors reports.

“Maui’s recent wildfires have deeply impacted its residents, and we stand by them during this challenging time,” says RRF President Mike McGrew. “RRF grants aim to ease the path toward recovery, offering tangible aid to those rebuilding their lives. As real estate agents, we recognize that unity and community spirit are invaluable, especially when facing such trying circumstances.”
