Quietly and with no fanfare, Ivanka Trump traveled to Maui a few weeks ago to hand out food and supplies to families who lost loved ones and everything they had in the horrific wildfires that swept the area.
The group visited a Christian church that acted as a food pantry for the residents who survived the deadliest wildfire in US history. The church is helping families rebuild their lives.
Ivanka Trump showed up in green cargo pants and a black tank top wearing a simple name tag that said “Iva.” Like other volunteers, she handed out fresh vegetables and prepackaged supplies to those in need.

“Pastors and church members whose entire neighborhoods were wiped out by the flames are healing their own hearts by volunteering. They’re toting supplies, hefting boxes, passing out meals, giving toys to children, and praying for the afflicted who’ve lost everything,” CityServe said on its website.
“Her humble presence lifted spirits and reminded the people of Lahaina that they are not forgotten,” the charitable organization noted of Trump in a statement.
“Amidst the tears being shed are tangible signs of hope and love, and with the arrival of meals and supplies, our partners and team alongside Ivanka, were hefting boxes of supplies, consoling survivors, and passing out meals to those who’ve lost everything,” the group added.
CityServe was beyond impressed with Ivanka Trump’s selfless service to the victims of the wildfires.

Nicole Bogosian, whose father pastors Calvary Chapel Lahaina, was present at Calvary Chapel South Maui when Ivanka Trump showed up as a surprise volunteer.
“It was amazing to see her humility, that none of this was for show,” Bogosian told CityServe Vice President of Governmental Relations Todd Lamphere. “It wasn’t for photo ops, it wasn’t about getting her name out there. Even her name tag just said, ‘Iva.’”
“That she just came and was serving the community, it was humbling. You could feel the love that was there and she truly just wants to help. It wasn’t about anything besides giving encouragement and love to people, and that’s what we need right now,” she stated.
There are almost 6,000 displaced people from the fire who are being put up in Maui hotels. Another 1,100 are being housed in Airbnb rentals.

CityServe reported that Ivanka Trump was part of the group distributing food, water, local produce, gift cards, and other needed supplies. The charitable organization is handing out gas cards and air filters to residents. People are being advised not to drink the water and to stay away from areas ravaged by the fire.
Ivanka Trump also got other companies to donate goods to those in Maui, according to City Serve. A 747 loaded with $1 million worth of supplies will head to Maui next week with e-bikes, electric scooters, electronics, toys, dry foods, small appliances, ukuleles, and several pallets of Jockey clothing, “All because of Ivanka’s connections,” CityServe pointed out.
God bless her.
