Calling all WOMEN to join us for our 2013 Women Build.
Women Build is an event that empowers women to take a step toward eliminating substandard housing through partnership with Honolulu Habitat for Humanity. This year, we are inviting women who have chosen non-traditional career paths to inspire others to follow their passion. The event is about women contributing to the community in ways they never before imagined. Volunteers will help the Panoncial family build a simple, decent home in Waiahole Valley.

See why being a Volunteer Photographer on the build site means so much….
You don’t need to be a professional photographer or have a fancy camera. Just a willingness to volunteer and help capture all the fun and hard work our Habitat family, Volunteers, and Site Crew do on a Habitat Home.
If you’re interested in being a photographer, register on VolunteerUp and sign up on the Photographer shift on a scheduled build day.
If you have any question, please email the Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
Aloha all! We are building our 68th Honolulu Habitat Home in Waiahole Valley on the Windward side in partnership with the Panoncial family.
We are looking for generous donations of lunches to help feed our hard working volunteers! Lunches & drinks are needed for the following dates. Come out to the work site and bring the lunch yourself, and see these volunteers in action! Meet the family, volunteers and construction staff. Bring yourself, your family, or your church committee and help support people who are making a difference for O‘ahu’s low income families!
A sample lunch would consist of a main dish (sandwiches, chili, pizza, etc.), a snack (fruit, cookies, chips, etc.), a drink (water or juice/soda) and any paper goods if needed for the meal. Lunch donors are not obligated to meet any dietary needs. We generally break for lunch at about 11:30 so it’s best that the lunches be at the worksite by 11:00am.
Panoncial family worksite lunch dates, Waiahole Valley Road – Kaneohe:
more dates to post soon….
If you are available to participate and donate lunch, please sign up on VolunteerUp. If you are not a registered Volunteer, please sign up now!
