National Volunteer Week takes place on April 18th through April 24th with the goal of recognizing the impact of volunteer service and the power of volunteers to build stronger communities and change lives.
In celebration of National Volunteer Week, Habitat for Humanity Maui would like to Mahalo all volunteers and highlight four volunteers who continue to make an impact in our community.
Michael (Mike) Young
Mike was named as one of Maui County’s Volunteer Hero in 2021 and played a large role in the partnership with Habitat Maui and the UH Maui College Apprenticeship Program which brought in over 100 student volunteers. Mike volunteers because giving back is a big part of what UH Maui and the Trades Unions stand for. You can read HandsON Maui’s press release highlighting Mike by clicking here.
Dominic volunteers at the ReStore and with our construction team helping to repair homes for elderly and disabled homeowners. He volunteers daily as a way to get involved, give back to his community, and help those in need.
Leonard volunteers because affordable housing is tough to accomplish on Maui and Habitat Maui helps to make it work. He enjoys building with the crew and encourages everyone to volunteer if they are looking for a fun and satisfying volunteer experience.
Soraya volunteers because she believes everyone deserves a home and while the ReStore proceeds help to build affordable homes, it also contributes in keeping the environment less polluted. She encourages everyone to volunteer and become involved in the community and be of service at the same time.
Mahalo to all of our volunteers for helping to accomplish our vision where everyone has a decent place to live!
