  1. Hi there! My family and I will be coming to Maui on April 6-13 2020 for my fiancé and my wedding. I wanted to reach out to see how to get involved with a day of volunteer work while we are in Maui? I saw on the website you need to reach out in advance to get information, so I would love to see what you have going on during the dates I’m there.
    Thank you!
