San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Donates $100,000 for Hawaii Wildfire Recovery Efforts

Summer of Yawa

The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross to provide much needed shelter, food, supplies and comfort to those affected by the recent Hawaii wildfires. This support is part of the Tribe’s philanthropic outreach to render aid to communities facing disasters and recovery efforts. It’s also directly in line with San Manuel’s commitment to help empower lives. 

“In our time of need, our Tribe received aid from those who were rooted in selflessness and chose to use their resources to provide life-saving support to our family. It is an honor to in turn, do the same for the Hawaiian community facing devastation due to the wildfires,” said San Manuel Chairwoman Lynn Valbuena.

The Tribe has been a partner with the American Red Cross for more than 20 years, helping to support programs like disaster response and recovery initiatives, preparedness training, and CPR/AED/First Aid education throughout San Bernardino and Riverside.
