First Citizens Contributes $200K to Nonprofits Providing Hawaii Wildfire Relief

First Citizens Bank is contributing $200,000 to nonprofit organizations providing housing relief and other essential assistance in areas impacted by the recent Hawaii wildfires.

“First Citizens has a long and proud history of supporting nonprofit organizations that help communities where our associates and customers live and work,” Patrick Noble, business services executive of the bank’s Honolulu and Maui, HI, markets and community association banking division, said. “We’re pleased to invest in the critical programming and relief services provided by these Maui-based nonprofits that are essential to aiding individuals displaced and uprooted by this catastrophic and devastating natural disaster.”

The nonprofit organizations receiving support from First Citizens include:

  • Hale Mahaolu, a nonprofit organization that provides quality, sanitary and safe housing for low- to moderate-income individuals, families and seniors in Maui County. Hale Mahaolu offers rental housing assistance and other substantial services to help meet the essential physical, psychological and social needs of its residents.
  • Maui Economic Opportunity, Inc. (MEO), a community-based organization committed to strengthening the lives of low-income individuals, families, the elderly and persons with disabilities and medical needs in Maui communities. MEO administers tools and programs such as community services, early childhood services, transportation, youth services and business development services.

“The important contributions of these nonprofit organizations substantially benefit residents in Maui whose lives were severely impacted by the recent Hawaii wildfires,” Mike Atkinson, senior director of community development at First Citizens Bank, said. “First Citizens is proud to support the influential efforts of these nonprofits and contribute to the positive change they drive in our communities.”
