Thanks to HOPE Services for these images:

For those with FB:

I have asked Rob to open this topic to initiate a fundraiser to run until June 15th or $1680 donation is reached, whichever is reached first. Since this is my Idea, I will be assisting Rob with this fundraiser.

Habitat for Humanity Hawai`i Island, Hope Services and many other organizations are working together in building temporary housing, shelter sheds, for Puna evacuees. These will be single sloped roof 10x12 foot HPM sheds built in Pahoa town. Each shed was planned with 2 windows and a solid 36" door.

In looking over the plans, I saw a need for more ventilation and security.

I contacted Lowes in Kona & they were willing to sell 21 of their Gatehouse Gibraltar security screen doors for the discounted rate of $80. Link to the door:

If we could pull together, once again as a community to support this effort, and pick up much of the tab for doors to provide ventilation for the evacuees temporary housing, I would appreciate it.

Donated funds will be to the shelter shed account to pay for doors. The plan is to have the Shelter Sheds totally occupied by evacuees by June 15, and end this fund raiser, or the 21 doors are paid for ($1680), whichever is first.

If you would like to donate to the Security Screen Doors 4 Evacuation Shed Fundraiser, click the "Donate" tab on the upper right section area

I know many organizations & people are asking for donations at this time.
The mind-boggling reality of this current lava inundation is that, every day, we have a new population of homeless and displaced.
