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.
