Veterans enrolled at the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College have a new place to study and network following a renovation project at the campus’ Veteran Resource Center.

The work was done with the help of a $9,000 grant from The Home Depot Foundation.

“We were really excited when the UH Maui College Veterans Club approached us about the project,” said Michael Miyashiro from The Home Depot, Maui. “The company is a strong supporter of our veterans, and we saw this as a great opportunity to help our community,” said Miyashiro in comments included in a UHMC media release announcing the project completion.

UHMC officials say the renovated center is a “comfortable place for veterans to study, receive tutoring, hunt for jobs, network with friends, or just take a break.”

Renovations include the addition of private study space, a kitchenette, new flooring, a lounge area, and built-in computer desks.

“We had a great volunteer crew put in some long hours already to prep for today,” said Cody Snyder, president of the UH Maui Veterans Club.

“It’s amazing to see it come along so quickly. We deeply appreciate The Home Depot Foundation’s contribution, and can’t wait to introduce our veterans to their new space,” said Snyder.
