Maui non-profit organizations Aloha House, (including Maui Counseling Group), Mālama Family Recovery Center, and Maui Youth and Family Services, are seeking the public’s help to obtain personal protective equipment, so their staff can help clients with critical substance abuse and mental health treatment needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“They are on the front lines, providing substance abuse treatment, mental health services, and community outreach – seeking those in crisis to help them get resources. Equipment is needed to prevent the spread of COVID-19 for employees and this highly vulnerable population,” said CEO Jud Cunningham.

Specifically, the agencies need new face masks, rubber gloves and protective smocks.

In addition, residential facilities need toilet paper, sanitizer wipes, hand sanitizer and paper towels.

Items can be dropped off at the Aloha House outpatient facility at 2062 W. Vineyard Street Suite #200 in Wailuku, FridayMonday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.; or call ahead to arrange an alternate time (808) 242-9733.
