As organizations and individuals continue to work to support Maui after the devastating wildfires, another area that’s stepping up is college football.
“In support of recovery efforts following the devastating wildfires on Maui, a portion of proceeds from each ticket sold to the Commodores’ season-opening football game against Hawai’i will be donated to Hawai’i Community Foundation’s Maui Strong Fund,” Vanderbilt wrote in a Tweet.
Vanderbilt will host Hawai’i on August 26 in their lone season matchup.
“The Maui Strong Fund is providing financial resources that can be deployed quickly, with a focus on rapid response and recovery for the devastating wildfires on Maui,” stated the Maui Strong Fund.
