WAILUKU, MAUI – On Friday, December 8th, Maui Hotel & Lodging Association gifted 500 fresh pies and presents to Maui County seniors throughout the island. Partnering with Kaunoa Senior Services, Meals on Wheels, and Maui County staff and volunteers, seniors were delivered custom baked pumpkin and apple pies made by hotel properties and new socks packaged by student volunteers from the UH Maui HOST Program and the Maui High School HOST Club.

“The visitor industry of Maui loves to bring joy to our kūpuna” says Lisa Paulson, Executive Director of MHLA. “It is heartwarming to see our property members giving generously of their resources and time while still navigating such recent hardships.”

Pie donations this year were baked by Fairmont Kea Lani, Four Seasons Maui at Wailea, Hyatt Regency Maui, Marriott Maui Ocean Club, Montage Kapalua Bay, The Ritz-Carlton Maui Kapalua, Wailea Beach Resort, and Westin Maui Resort and Spa.
