Maui Electric is hosting its annual Rummage Sale benefitting Maui United Way on Saturday, June 17, from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., at its Kahului auditorium located at 210 W. Kamehameha Avenue. The public is also welcome to donate any new or gently used household items for the sale starting on Thursday, June 15 to Friday, June 16, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The public can call 872-3216 to coordinate drop-offs during this time.

All proceeds from the sale will benefit Maui United Way, a non-profit organization that raises and invests corporate and individual donations in 33 health and human services partner agencies and 34 programs to benefit our Maui County community.

“Mahalo to the Maui Electric ‘ohana for coordinating this annual event that benefits the Maui United Way,” said Maui United Way’s President and Chief Professional Officer Kari Luna Nunokawa. “Maui Electric and its employees are a prime example of what it means to LIVE UNITED.”

Last year, Maui Electric and its employees donated $72,778.07 to Maui United Way. In addition to the rummage sale, the company’s employees donate their own funds, organize other fundraisers throughout the year, and coordinate the popular Keiki Tilapia Fishing Tournament that attracts over 600 keiki and their families in Kā‘anapali.

“Our Maui Electric employees firmly believe in taking care of the people in their communities,” said Sharon Suzuki, Maui Electric president. “Supporting Maui United Way does just that as this organization works to provide a thriving, sustainable quality of life by effectively addressing Maui’s most vital needs and inspiring people to give, advocate and volunteer.
