Habitat Maui has built or renovated 89 homes on the island since 1997 and has another 23 in the works. The affiliate also operates a ReStore, in which donated items are sold to the public to raise funding to support construction efforts. The donation of tubs supported Habitat Maui through the ReStore and raised a significant amount of money to build new homes.
Mountain Re-Source Center, a nonprofit that seeks donations of usable materials to support the work of other nonprofit organizations, coordinated the donation on behalf of Habitat for Humanity Maui.
Max Tornai, director of Development & Community Relations for Habitat for Humanity Maui, thanked the donors for their incredible support. “The Habitat for Humanity Maui affiliate is currently constructing a 16-unit condominium in Wailuku, which will fulfill the dream of homeownership for 16 very well-deserving local partner families who have struggled finding long-term affordable housing. The donation of these beautiful acrylic soaking tubs from PACE Supply and Dorvin D. Leis Company will support construction efforts and help make these dreams a reality. Habitat for Humanity Maui is incredibly appreciative of the generosity of this donation and would like to give a huge MAHALO (thank you!) to everyone involved.”
