Apple User Group Assistance and Refurb Program

In response to the recent wildfires here on Maui, the Maui Apple User Society will be working on a program to get Refurbished Mac computers into those in need. There are three ways you can help:

  1. We are accepting monetary donations so we can purchase chargers, keyboards, and mice for Apple devices. Our goal is to get about 40-50 Apple devices to individuals impacted by the fires.
  2. If you have an Apple MacBook, iMac, iPad devices 2015 or newer, that can be refurbished or used for parts, we will accept them. Contact Rick at to drop off items.
  3. On September 30, 2023 from 2-5 we are looking for 15 volunteers to help organize, setup, and assess the refurbished computers so we can get them out to individuals. Again email if you can help.
