Southern Glazer's Donates $50,000 to Aid Maui; Staff Raises $50,000 for Employee Who Lost Home

Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits said it donated $50,000 to aid Maui – $25,000 to the Maui Strong Fund - Hawaii Community Foundation, which is providing financial resources that can be deployed quickly, with a focus on rapid response and recovery in Maui, and $25,000 to the Kokua Restaurant & Hospitality Fund for Maui to help provide immediate assistance to hardworking restaurant, bar and hospitality workers displaced by the devastating wildfires that have impacted West Maui communities from Lahaina to Kapalua, a cherished home of the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival.

In addition to this corporate donation, grassroots efforts have been led by Southern Glazer’s employees to raise nearly $50,000 for a fellow team member who lost their home during the disaster.

“The outpour of support we’ve received from community members, supplier partners, and our Southern Glazer’s family is so greatly appreciated,” said Warren Shon, EVP-Hawaii General Manager, Southern Glazer’s. “The road to recovery for Maui will be long, but I know that we’ll continue to work together to support our neighbors and organizations that are working around the clock to rebuild our beautiful and resilient island.”
