Puuhonua o Puna Volunteer

Volunteer at the HUB

Volunteer Sign Up

Pu‘uhonua o Puna Info & Supply Hub was set up to help individuals displaced by the May 2018 lava activities. We are 100% community driven and funded. Our goal is to provide information and supplies directly to the people.

We welcome and appreciate any help to keep our operations running smoothly and to lend support to our community during this time. 

Daily volunteer times are from: 

  • 9 AM - 12 PM
  • 12 PM -  3 PM
  • 3 PM - 6 PM (closing shift runs a little longer)

Stations include Unloading donation items, backstock, pet food/water, sanitation, canned goods, and clothing. If you have a truck, we may ask you to help us make deliveries to displaced folks in need of supplies. 

If you would like to volunteer in the kitchen or prepare a meal, please visit: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b054caead2ca4fa7-puna

LOCATION:

We are located on the corner of Highway 130 and Pahoa-Kapoho Road, in the corner lot at the 4-way intersection across Pahoa High School. Look for the tents and containers.

NOTE: If time slots are full and you are in the area, you are more than welcome to stop by and see if help is needed. 

Mahalo nui to all of you. We are so appreciative of our local and global community for the continued support. MAHALO! MAHALO! MAHALO!
