Pacific Emblem Company, a California-based custom manufacturer of patches, emblems, and wristbands, is stepping up in a big way to help raise money for the fire victims on Maui.

According to the company, it has ties and friends on the Hawaiian Islands and wanted to do something to help as much as possible.

“My heart hurts for all those on Maui who lost their lives, homes, and businesses, and I had to do something to raise desperately needed funds for the residents,” says Rich Soergel (aka Dr. Patch), president of Pacific Emblem Company.

“My goal was to set up a special site ( where people can donate and, in doing so, get free patches, wristbands, and/or decals in return for their in-kind donations,” explains Soergel. “We created a very special and carefully thought-out design featuring the Hawaiian sea turtle (symbolizing calm and resilience) and a whale tail (symbolizing strength and determination) on a gentle teal-colored background. We are proud of our design.”

The company’s goal is to raise upwards of $50,000+ and donate to the Hawaii Community Foundation (referred to as the Maui Strong Fund). And 100% of the money raised (after the cost of goods, employees, and shipping) will be donated. The goal is for Soergel to fly to Maui and hand-deliver a check for that amount and more. The company states, “Sharing and supporting this initiative will make it happen!”
