Two Companies Answer Hand Sanitizer Shortage

A special thank you to both Maui Brewing Co., and Hawaii Sea Spirits for their progressive thinking and answering to the shortage of hand sanitizer. Both companies normally make alcohol and have now started making hand sanitizer due to the demand currently faced on Maui from the Coronavirus.

First responders and the needy are receiving donations of the alcohol based sanitizer. Maui Brewing Co., now doing take out orders only, is giving to go orders one hand sanitizer from both locations in Kihei and Lahaina.

Thank you for your great efforts in helping keep our community healthy!
