Build-a-Thon 2014

Our 2014 Annual Build-a-Thon was a Great success! 

With the help of our donors and supporters, we raised $20,000 to support Honolulu Habitat’s building efforts to eliminate substandard housing on Oahu.

  This two-day hands-on construction project brought together individuals and teams of community volunteers from Honolulu businesses and military groups, to work together with our five low-income Habitat families to build their simple, decent homes in the Kumuhau, Waimanalo subdivision.

Mahalo to this amazing group for volunteering with us on June 22nd, 2013. They worked so hard and had such a great time on site that the Habitat families were really touched by their serving hearts. We had volunteers come from Canada, Florida, New York, California, everywhere and even our local youth right here in Hawaii that joined us. We appreciate that the youth wants to get involved in helping out in the local communities and it’s such a great things to see at such a young age.

MAHALO to HOPE Youth Corps! We hope to see you again.
