Build-A-Thon 2012 a great start to Building a Better Kaua‘i!

On August 4 and 5, over 50 members and affiliate members of the Kauai Board of REALTORS®, friends, and volunteers came together with a combined 400+ hours of labor to give a “hand up” to three Kaua’i Habitat for Humanity partner families in Anahola.

Thanks to the support and fundraising efforts of the Kauai Board of REALTORS® and its members, families, and friends, over $7,100 in contributions were raised to further the efforts of Kaua’i Habitat’s work of building affordable homes for Kaua’i families in need. And to top it all off, a generous gift of $1,325 was given by Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers as a matching gift for every dollar their agents raised for this event! The grand total raised through their efforts before, during, and even after the 2-day build event was $8,500!

By the end of the build event, the floor was raised and sheeted in plywood on the Fernandez lot, floor joists were constructed on the Napoleon lot, and footings were dug on the Ka’aihue-Paopao lot at the upper end of the street.

A lot was accomplished in those two days under the hot Anahola sun – thanks to everyone who supported us and came out to build! It is simply amazing what good can be done when caring individuals, friends, families, and neighbors, work together toward a common and all too important goal. The renewed partnership between Kauai Board of REALTORS® and Kaua’i Habitat for Humanity is a natural fit given our mutual goal of providing housing on Kaua’i and has unlimited potential. Mahalo!
