Upcoming Opportunities


If you would like to support Maui’s relief efforts, consider making a monetary donation to Maui Food Bank or Hawaii Food Bank.  Both food banks are dedicated to providing continued support to the communities impacted as they work in the days, weeks, and months to recover.


September 14 – September 26, 2023


Give now to our annual Yom Kippur Food Drive. The following are the most-needed items, however all non-glass, non-perishable food items are accepted:


Brown or White Rice

Canned Vegetables

Canned or Dried Fruit

Whole Grain Pasta

Peanut Butter

Canned Meats

Shelf-Stable Milk

Whole Grain Cereal


Please look for labels that read: low sodium, no salt added, no sugar added, unsweetened, reduced sodium, 100% fruit juice, lite. You may either pick up a brown bag from WRT to fill or fill a bag of your own. Your donations may be dropped off in the containers in the rear parking lot (behind the ECC wing) during the week leading up to Yom Kippur and on Yom Kippur Day. If you would prefer to make a monetary donation you may do so either by donating to the Maui Food Bank, Mazon or the WRT Hungry and Homeless Fund. Questions? Email Sharon Stiefel.
