Habitat for Humanity Maui raised more than $19,500 during this year’s 12th annual Build-A-Thon on February 21 and 22 in the Kahoma Residential Subdivision in Lahaina.

The fundraiser was part of their 10 affordable homes project in the new 68 lot subdivision.

More than 70 volunteers worked alongside Habitat Maui’s partner families on a number of different projects including breaking ground on two homes, framing work, and floor installations.

Truss Systems of Hawaiʻi donated wall panels and roof trusses, and local restaurants such as Aloha Mixed Plate, Captain Jack’s Island Grill, Home Maid Bakery, and Starbucks in Lahaina Cannery Mall donated food and coffee for all participants.


Habitat for Humanity Maui also received donations and sponsorships from Maui Electric Company,
Honsador Lumber, Wide Open Construction, and Matheson Maui.

“It was amazing to see volunteers and partnering families come together to lend each other a hand in building these homes,” Community Relations Director Yvonne McClean said in a press release.

“With the help of the community, we were able to raise funds for building materials and accomplish more than what we had originally planned. We are grateful for our donors and participants for making it another successful event”, said Yvonne McClean, Community Relations Director.

Habitat for Humanity Maui is currently seeking volunteers for various ongoing projects.
