For many years, the AdvoCare® team and its founding family have traveled to Hawaii, Maui, and Lahaina specifically to spend time with family, relax and enjoy the beauty and culture of the region. Last week, like so many Americans, the AdvoCare team felt a deep sadness for the devastation experienced by the people of Lahaina and took it upon themselves to provide support locally.
Today, AdvoCare made a total donation of $150,000 to two local non-profit organizations, Harvest Maui Relief fund at Harvest Kumalani and the Sacred Heart School in Lahaina, to support emergency medical care, food availability, shelter, and rebuilding. Harvest at Kumulani Chapel is on the ground in Maui and the Lahaina area providing daily support to the victims and first responder emergency personnel. AdvoCare’s gift will help the Sacred Hearts School, an educational cornerstone for more than a century, support children in the local community, relocate and rebuild.
“Our core belief is that we are advocates who care, and now is the time to care for the residents and first responders of Lahaina,” shared Stacey Ragus Cernicky from the AdvoCare founding family. “We knew that we could help make an impact on the future of Lahaina and had to act in support of a culture and region we know and love.”
AdvoCare and the AdvoCare Foundation work to support and build healthy lifestyles for families and the goal for our support in Lahaina is to help rebuild those healthy families who were affected by the fire.
