WAILUKU — On Oct. 30, Lahainaluna High School National Honor Society students volunteered with Habitat for Humanity Maui.

Advisor Steven Cornell joined them to paint window trims, stairs and doors, repair floor cracks and plant native plants at the ReStore, where Habitat for Humanity’s offices are located.

The ReStore at 970 Lower Main St. in Wailuku accepts new and nearly new building materials to sell to customers at reduced prices.

Donated items reduce refuse going into the landfill, and all proceeds help to build another Habitat home on Maui.

Habitat for Humanity Maui became an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International in 1997 and started building in 2003.

Its mission is to build decent housing and to renovate substandard housing on Maui in partnership with community volunteers and potential homeowners to eliminate homelessness and substandard housing.

Individuals and businesses are welcome to partner with Habitat by volunteering or making a donation.
