Milgard Windows & Doors and HPM Building Supply joined forces to manufacture 200 windows for micro shelters after Big Island residents were forced to evacuate.

The Kilauea volcano, on the Big Island of Hawaii, began erupting in May of 2018. The eruption destroyed 706 homes and forced more than 2,000 to evacuate. Temporary housing was needed for the thousands who evacuated.

“HPM Building Supply reached out to us for help in expediting the production of over 200 Style Line® Series vinyl windows,” says 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.”

Both companies worked together with many business partners and volunteers to build twenty micro shelters. These shelters are now part of the Hope Services Project.
