Milgard Partners with HPM to Build Micro Shelters for Big Island Evacuees
September 14, 2018
Pahoa, HI. (Sept 13, 2018) – Milgard Windows & Doors partnered with HPM Building Supply to quickly manufacture 200 windows for a micro shelter project aiding Big Island residents forced to evacuate their homes due to the volcanic eruption.
The eruption of the Kilauea volcano that began in May 2018 on the Big Island of Hawaii destroyed 706 homes in total and forced more than 2,000 people to evacuate the area. Temporary structures were needed to provide housing for those displaced from their homes.
“HPM Building Supply reached out to us for help in expediting the production of over 200 Style Line® Series vinyl windows,” said Jeff Cain, Regional Sales Manager at Milgard Windows & Doors. “Our manufacturing team worked quickly to build the windows and deliver them to the Big Island in time to create micro shelters for those in need.”
Twenty micro shelters were quickly constructed with the support of many business partners and building volunteers. The shelters are now part of the HOPE Services project, located on an eight-acre parcel of land behind the Sacred Heart Church off of Pahoa Village Road.
