HCF to Match Dollar-For-Dollar Donations from Housewares Industry
To help support the people of Maui after the recent wildfire tragedy, the Housewares Charity Foundation (HCF) has established a fund for donations and will match contributions dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000 in total. Donations will go to support the Maui Strong Fund and Team Rubicon Disaster Relief.
“There are no words to describe the devastating loss that the Maui community has endured due to the recent wildfire tragedy, which has been declared the deadliest natural disaster in Hawaii’s history and the deadliest U.S. wildfire in more than a century,” says Ron Diamond, HCF executive chair and CEO, Conair Corp. “We’ve seen it on the news, and some of us know people directly affected. It’s a real-life nightmare,”
“Our industry has the opportunity to make a difference, to reflect the true Aloha spirit. Join your colleagues and friends with your donation today,” added Barb Westfield, HCF director and CEO, Westfield Market Makers. “If you chip in $5, we’ll donate $5 as a match, same goes for $50, $100 or more. Each and every dollar counts. Our goal is to reach $100,000 in total donations.”
