Last month, record-breaking rains in Hawai‘i caused widespread devastation on Kaua‘i leaving thousands of residents in need of support to rebuild their homes, businesses and farms. This concert was sparkedby local musicians and community leaders who are passionate about spreading aloha and helping the people of Kaua‘i get back to normal life.Donavon Frankenreiter, a Kaua‘i resident and musician, calledhis friend Jack Johnson to help put ona benefit show for the community. Local promoter, BAMP Project, jumped on board to coordinate the event and several more musicians and local businesses have rallied togetherto host a night to raise moneyand lift the spirits of the localswho have been through so much. This storm will be remembered for years to come, not only for thedamaging flood waters,but also for the way people have joined togetherto support the impacted familiesand communities.
All net proceeds will go to the Kaua‘i Relief & RecoveryFund at Hawai‘i Community Foundation as well as otherlocal organizations committedto flood relief.The Kaua‘i Relief and Recovery Fund was established, with support from Pierre and Pam Omidyar, to provide immediateassistance including emergencyprovisions, shelter and healthcare, as well as ongoing supportto stabilize communities and rebuild. Within the first 24 hours, grants were distributed to local organizations who are bringingimmediate relief to impacted communities, including assistance to residents who have been displaced from their homes or cut-offfrom receiving basic necessities includingmedical supplies, food and water. Hawai‘i Community Foundation is waiving any administrative fees on the fund for the first three months so that more funds are availableto address criticalneeds. Grants are continuing to be distributed based on daily conversations with Kaua‘i nonprofits, HCF staff, and the CountyOffice to identifyimmediate needs.
