Hilton Grand Vacations & Honolulu Habitat for Humanity Build New Home for Family in Waimanalo

Hilton Grand Vacations (HGV) on O’ahu have joined hands with Honolulu Habitat for Humanity to build a home for a local family in Waimānalo, Hawaii, United States.

In September 2021, HGV welcomed Habitat for Humanity International as a new partner in its corporate social responsibility program, HGV Serves. The leading timeshare company donated $100,000 to Habitat Humanity to support corporate volunteerism for building decent and sustainable homes in communities across the country.

“Hilton Grand Vacations and Habitat for Humanity have a shared commitment to building strong and thriving communities,” said Julie Laird Davis, vice president of corporate and foundation relations at Habitat for Humanity International. “The company’s support, along with volunteer participation from their employees, will make a meaningful impact on the lives of many Habitat homeowners seeking a new path toward stable and independent lives.”

Honolulu Habitat will receive $15,000 worth of funding from HGV to support its five-year strategic plan to build and repair affordable homes on O’ahu.

According to Jim Murphy, CEO of Honolulu Habitat, HGV’s support comes at a critical time as the need for affordable housing on O’ahu continues to grow.

Together, HGV and Honolulu Habitat seek to improve countless lives in communities worldwide.

On 8-9 April, HGV employee volunteers worked with Honolulu Habitat to build a three-bedroom, single-family home for a low-income family in Waimānalo to call their own. Volunteers were guided and supervised by Habitat construction staff while also learning new skills and tools to complete the project.
