PDCA of Hawaii Members Give Helping Hands Hawaii a Facelift

Members of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America’s Hawaii chapter volunteered their time and skills to put a fresh coat of paint on Helping Hands Hawaii’s building on Nimitz Highway.

“We are happy to do this work for Helping Hands Hawaii because their programs serve a wide range of people in Hawaii who need the help,” says PDCA of Hawaii Executive Director Dean Nagatoshi.

PDCA of Hawaii partnered with contractor member JD Painting and Decorating Inc. and associate member Benjamin Moore & Co., which donated the materials, to paint the exterior of the building.

“The building hasn’t been painted since we purchased the property nearly 20 years ago,” says Jan Harada, president and CEO of HHH, “and now our clients, business partners and other guests will be greeted with a brighter, more welcoming facility.”

The project began on Oct. 22 and was completed on Nov. 2.

Sheldon Ibara of JD Painting and Decorating pointed out that the building was due for a facelift because it looked “dingy,” and the exterior paint was “faded and chipped. We’re glad to provide assistance to Helping Hands Hawaii, and enjoy participating in PDCA’s campaign of giving back to the community.”
