HONOLULU (KHNL) - Owning a home is the American Dream.

And local volunteers are getting ready to make that happen for many families.

Lieutenant Governor Duke Aiona proclaimed Thursday "Habitat for Humanity Build-A-Thon Day."

Local volunteers will soon kick off the fourth annual Build-A-Thon Event.

They plan to construct 30 homes for families across the state.

"At a price that I think is invaluable because it's their sweat equity along with their community that builds the home," said Lt. Governor Aiona.

The Habitat for Humanity Build-A-Thon will begins June 16th.
