Puna Women Build a success

Women Build is an annual Habitat International program that encourages women to make a difference by working on a build in their community and to fundraise for Habitat’s build programs.

This year, Habitat for Humanity Hawaii Island held their Women Build in Puna last month and assisted families affected by the eruption last year. Volunteers from WalMart in Hilo, HPM Building Supply and the Hawaii Regional Council of Carpenter’s came together and helped on projects that included cleaning up debris, building stairs, building a ramp, painting, and stabilizing an existing structure.

“Habitat is there to help families get their homes back to livable standards so they can move back. The great turnout at the Women Build helped us move forward in our efforts to do just that,” stated Adrienne Eisele, Family Services/volunteer coordinator for East Hawaii.


There will be more opportunities to volunteer in Puna.
