Volunteers needed for Kona Blitz Build


Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii, a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, has operated out of Kona since 2002 with a goal of providing homes for low-income families along the entire west coast of the Big Island.

Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii has built homes in Ocean View, Waimea, Captain Cook, and Kawaihae.

This September, they seek to build in Kona for the first time by hosting a Blitz Build.

Partnering with the Blitz Home Builders, a national organization that completes one Blitz Build annually, Habitat will welcome approximately 100 volunteers from all over the mainland. The goal is to build five homes in 10 days.

The build will take place Sept. 12-22 on Lai Opua, Hawaiian Home Lands near Kealakehe High School.

To achieve the ambitious goal of completing all five homes, 250 volunteers are essential.

There will be many different types of volunteer opportunities, including construction, safety, medical, registration, and hospitality. This simply cannot be done without a true community effort!

If interested in volunteering your time for the Blitz Build, please contact Margo Takata at or call the Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii Office at 331-8010.
