Volunteer on Maui – Surfrider Foundation Beach Clean-Up 2020

Maui Volunteer Beach Clean Up

For Text Version:

Beach Clean-Up 2020
Whether you live on Maui or love to vacation on Maui, taking care of the beaches is essential. I, Jenny, recently became involved with Surfrider Foundation Maui as the volunteer Social Media Coordinator. Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches for all people, through conservation, activism, research and education.

Every 3rd Saturday of the month, Surfrider Maui hosts a Beach Clean Up, along with a local business. January 2020 we saw our largest volunteer turn-out, with over 160 volunteers helping clean up Sugar Beach in Kihei, HI. It was incredible seeing the community come together and make a huge impact in one morning of service. We were able to collect over 3000 pounds of trash that day! Amazing! If you live on Maui or plan to visit this month, the next Beach Clean Up is hosted by Fork & Salad and will be located at Kahului Harbor. See details above. You can find Surfrider Maui on Facebook, Instagram and Protect what you love!

Mele Kalikimaka!

We hope the holiday season finds you and yours doing well. Remember to take a deep breath every moment possible. Things can wait. Savor that moment of peace so you can tackle the rest of your holiday to-do list even more effectively. Bring that Maui chill-vibe wherever you go. And know that we are thankful for you this Christmas season and all year long!

An unexpected swim date with Santa!

Last Spring, our daughter and I met up with some friends at Baby Beach in Lahaina, Hawaii. After a while an unexpected visitor rolled up on his red bike, decked out for Christmas — to our delight it was a beachy Santa! You never know what may happen while living on a tiny rock in the Pacific. Sometimes it means you get to swim with the man in the red suit, ahem, red swim trunks!

For those not lucky enough to swim with Santa, on Christmas Eve, be sure to catch him arrive by outrigger canoe! Click here for our holiday calendar.

Grand Wailea Santa
Arrival: 9am-11am
Location: Wailea Beach & Chapel Lawn
