Hawaiians Organize Community Donation Center After Heavy Rain Devastates Oahu

Community members living near and around Haleiwa, Hawaii, turned a local Mormon church into a donation center for those affected by the intense rainfall that lashed the island of Oahu earlier this week.

This footage was recorded by a local man and shows various rooms throughout the church filled with different donated items.

“You wouldn’t believe this,” the recorder says as he films a hallway lined with cleaning supplies and household items before panning the camera into rooms filled with food, bedding, and other necessities as well as volunteers.

“The community kicked in and this was the result,” the man told Storyful. “I’ve never seen anything like it before, and I’ve been out here for over 40 years,” he said. Credit: Anonymous via Storyful
