2013 Build-a-thon rack card thumbnailWhat’s a Build-a-Thon?

The Build-a-Thon is our annual statewide event to generate awareness and support for Hawai‘i Habitat affiliates. Community members like you, from all walks of life, help to build homes, refurbish houses in need of repair, and raise awareness that affordable housing is a matter of conscience and action. All proceeds from the event support our local Habitat affiliates and our statewide efforts to provide successful homeownership to low-income families in Hawai‘i.  Most importantly, the Build-a-Thon event supports Hawai‘i Habitat for Humanity’s vision:  That all people of Hawai‘i have housing in which they can thrive.
