HPM Building Supply has reached the halfway mark of its pledge to complete 100 Acts of Service to mark its centennial anniversary.

Through partnerships with nonprofit and service-based organizations, HPM owner-employees are fanning out across the state to give back to the communities that have supported HPM for a century.

“As we mark our centennial anniversary, HPM owes so much of our success to the communities that have supported us,” Jason Fujimoto, President & CEO said. “These 100 Acts of Service are our way of showing appreciation and giving back—especially as our communities continue to recover from the pandemic. We look forward to strengthening connections through these service projects and continuing our commitment to a more resilient, sustainable Hawai‘i.”

The 100 Acts of Service initiative is led by a group of 22 owner-employees who serve as Community Building Team Champions. They organized more than 50 projects, which owner-employees from across the state have completed. HPM’s goal is to complete 100 Acts by the end of the year.

Completed projects include collecting diaper donations for the Hawai‘i Diaper Bank, volunteering at the Hawaii Food Basket, organizing beach and park cleanups, and donating renovation supplies to organizations in need. Nonprofit organizations interested in partnering with HPM on an Act of Service should email Kylie Bergen at [email protected] or call 808-356-5456.
