Goodwill planning Maui Invite Night
Goodwill Industries of Hawaii will hold its first Maui Invite Night on Friday.
The event is sponsored by Maui Time and KPOA at the new Maui Goodwill Store at 250 Alamaha St. in Kahului.
Activities throughout the night include special offers, giveaways, contests and personal styling tips courtesy of the students from the Fashion Technology Department of the University of Hawaii Maui College.
Participants also will learn about the new Goodwill store and its donation locations.
Purchases and donations made to Goodwill directly support its job placement and readiness programs, which are services the nonprofit has been providing to Maui residents since 2004.
Those attending the event can RSVP in the store or online at www.higoodwill.org/maui night.

Winds idle Central Maui Landfill
High winds shut down the Central Maui Landfill as of 1 p.m. Tuesday, and it will be closed at the same time today to give workers time to collect windblown debris, according to a Maui County announcement.
By law, the landfill is required to comply with strict litter control requirements, and officials with the Department of Environmental Management said the early closures were necessary to take measures to avoid potential state Department of Health citations and/or fines, the announcement said.
Officials will reassess conditions at the landfill for Thursday. For more information, call 270-6153.
The National Weather Service reported gusts of up to 25 mph at noon Tuesday at Kahului Airport. Then, at 3 p.m. at the airport, northeast winds were "breezy" with sustained winds of 21 mph.
Forecasters predict trade winds blowing from 10 to 15 mph through Sunday.
