Let’s build it wahine!

Woohoo! Kaua`i Habitat was just selected to be one of 275 sites for National Women Build Week, sponsored by Lowe’s, from May 5-May 13! Stay tuned for more info on when and how our affiliate will be mobilizing for this great event. http://www.habitat.org/wb/

Happy Fat Tuesday!

A L O H A to volunteers Tina Metts and Sandie Roberts who just arrived to Kaua`i from Biloxi! This dynamic duo will be joining volunteers Guy Ambrose, Jeannette McDonald, Mark Pressly and our Habitat crew to finish laying sheathing on the roof of our current build in Anahola! Next task scheduled for this week: shingling.

Are you roofing too? Quick tips: Getting up on ladders can be a challenge for many of us. When on your ladder, be sure not to ‘over reach’ to either side. As a guide, keep your belt buckle between the rails. Also, stay safe once on the roof by wearing shoes with good traction, such as rubber-sold shoes/boots.

Happy Fat Tuesday!

A beautiful day for a build
