On Saturday, August 15, 2009, several of The Parrish Collection Kauai staff participated in the 6th annual Kauai Habitat for Humanity Build-a-thon. Participants from all over Kauai worked alongside Habitat homeowners to build three new, affordable homes.
Our team worked at the Habitat base yard building trusses for a home in Kalaheo…ultimately helping to build 25 trusses!! The first building experience for several of the staff, they received training on how to hold a hammer and other building techniques. “I was also thrilled that my arms still worked the next day!” stated Anne, an Executive Assistant at Parrish Kauai.
Participants were asked to secure at least $100 in pledges, sponsorships and donations. The Parrish Collection offered up the initial donation and the team raised over $450. Much was accomplished in the one-day project and the team was proud of all they had accomplished. “Habitat is a wonderful organization and I was honored to be part of The Parrish Collection team helping others in our Kauai community” continued Anne.
