Greetings Chapter President and Chapter Leadership,

As you know, a horrific wildfire destroyed the town of Lahaina and other areas of Maui, Hawaii. With over 110 killed, 300 plus missing and 1,700 homes/businesses destroyed, the fires are the worst natural disaster in modern Hawaii history.

The US Junior Chamber of Commerce Foundation with National President Nate’s urging is issuing an appeal to all JCI USA Chapters to raise funds and donate these monies to your Jaycee Foundation, so that a significant fund and support can be given to our fellow Jaycees in Maui to help and aid in this disaster. This is a urgent appeal to you and your Chapter’s Leadership to take part and help in our joint relief endeavor.

“Service to Humanity is the BEST work of Life”

Your support can be sent to:

Thank you in advance for your caring and actions,

In Jaycee Spirit,

Texas Jaycees

It is our pleasure to share that the New Braunfels TX Jaycees have taken great initiative kicking off a campaign encouraging chapters to match their $1,000 donation to support relief efforts in Maui. In support of New Braunfels, TX wonderful call to action JCI Texas has pledged to match Texas chapter donations up to $1,000 and up to $5,000 total. As New Braunfels has challenged other chapters, Texas would like to extend the challenge to all other states within JCI USA to match their chapters’ donations up to $5,000.

Our creed dictates that “We believe…that the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations” or in this case states. Our creed also tells us that “service to humanity is the best work of life”.

We stand strongly in support of our brothers and sisters of JCI Maui as well as all that this tragedy has affected.

In Jaycee Spirit,
