First football game honors Maui wildfire victims

Hawaiian theme is about more than a tropical shirt
Lahainas+Front+Street+after+the+wildfire.
Lahaina’s Front Street after the wildfire.

Season opening game for Fresno Christian football honors victims and survivors of the Maui wildfires that began Aug. 8. This is the worst natural disaster for the state since a 1961 tsunami as well as the deadliest wildfire in modern US history. 

More than 11,000 local residents, many of whom have been displaced, are in need of immediate help from organizations like FEMA, Red Cross, Samaritan’s Purse and Convoy of Hope. Lahaina, the formal royal capital is gone according to Mark Gudmunson, senior pastor of Pukalani Community Church of the Nazarene.

Leadership teachers, Hope Villines who visits the island each summer, along with teaching partner Robert Foshee chose to combine the first football game theme with an opportunity to help. Leadership has chosen to support Convoy of Hope who is on the ground delivering relief to the residents of Maui.
