Honolulu Habitat for Humanity is in the process of building its 78th home in Hawaii.
On Friday, a team from KHON2 arrived at the Kaneohe construction site to pitch in.
Habitat for Humanity offers zero-interest loans to qualified families, and is founded on the belief that everyone should have a safe place to live.
Through the organization, not only do families build their own home, they have to help build someone else’s.
“This experience is awesome, because you’re into so many situations, so many things that can be done or will be done or don’t, but that’s okay. In the end, it’ll all come together,” said homeowner Leve Watson.
“I’ve got to give the people that do this on a regular basis, and Habitat for Humanity, a big shoutout, because you do a great thing and you do it consistently, and keep up the good work,” said KHON2 weather anchor Justin Cruz. “This is a great learning opportunity for me, so I’m very thankful for that.”
KHON2’s participation was part of Founders Day, an initiative by parent company Nexstar to help others in the community.
