Oprah Winfrey Hands Out Supplies To Maui Shelters After Devastating Wildfires

Oprah is doing her part to give back to the victims of the horrific Maui wildfires. The media mogul, who owns property on the island, handed out supplies in person amid the aftermath of the disaster this week, Access Hollywood confirms. A rep for Oprah told Access that the TV icon “went to a local shelter” to “ask first-hand what was most needed” before shopping at Walmart and Costco for the necessary items and bringing them back. The rep added that Oprah plans to “do more, as it becomes clear which funds can be the most helpful for the short-term and long-term rebuilding.” According to social media video from Oprah’s visit, she delivered cots, pillows and toiletries for those in need. The 69-year-old also appeared emotional when speaking with the BBC about the devastation, which as of Friday has left more than 50 people dead.
