Maui Cookie Lady owner Mitzi Toro is trying to help Mauiʻs youth in need with her new initiative, the “Maui School Slippah Solace.”

The initiative aims to provide a case of slippers for every school on all three islands in Maui County. 

As a former DOE teacher, Toro said she witnessed firsthand the need for slippers in schools. 

“Many times kids will come to school with no slippers and because of the safety requirement to have footwear, teachers and staff would buy slippers with their personal funds to have on hand, which makes it difficult to maintain when needing a variety of sizes, especially the bigger sizes,” Toro said in a press release. 

Toro has saved enough funds to donate one case of slippers to each of the public schools in the upcountry district where her company is located.
