The Lyman Museum has postponed its annual fundraising dinner this year so that we can help raise funds for the victims of the Puna lava eruption.

Please join us in raising money for the Hawai‘i Island Volcano Recovery Fund at the Hawai‘i Community Foundation. This fund provides support to nonprofit organizations offering critical services to affected residents.  It was created to bring relief to the communities on Hawai‘i Island that have been impacted by the Kilauea volcano eruption.  By giving to the Hawai‘i Island Volcano Recovery Fund, you are supporting the effort to stabilize and rebuild lives affected by this disaster.

In early May 2018 the ground shook, the streets cracked open and a river of lava began to flow, destroying everything in its path. Over 24 fissures have opened and destroyed more than 700 homes, displacing thousands of residents, pets, and wild animals and isolating many areas by cutting off access to the roads. The 2000-degree lava continues to flow and shows no signs of slowing down.

Houses continue to be destroyed and the numbers being displaced grow each day. Animal rescues are being coordinated and the community has banded together to help their neighbors who have lost everything.

This eruption has been going on for over 80 days with no end in sight, but there is still a critical need for immediate support for the lava evacuees.

The Lyman Museum is committed to raising $ 10,000 to help the evacuees with food, housing relocation services, pet support, laundry vouchers, and many other basic needs. Recovery will take a long time.
