A community Care Van outreach program on the Island of Maui, formed by a group of committed Episcopalians from Good Shepherd, Holy Innocents, St. John’s and Trinity By-the-Sea churches. The program is a food and clothing distribution service for the poor and needy homeless in the community which uses the care-van to deliver essential food, hygiene and clothing items throughout the island. With a strong volunteer base from the Episcopal Churches on Maui, the program is growing and now includes churches from various denominations.
