Veterans Center still needs money to reach completion

The new Veterans Center on Wharf Road in Kaunakakai still needs appliances, fixtures and other improvements before it can open.

Larry Helm, commander of Molokai Veterans Caring for Veterans, provided an update on the construction of the Veteran’s Center on Wharf Road.

The well-documented problems with getting a building permit from Maui County persisted for about five years. Work began in earnest a few months ago and appears to be moving forward.

However, according to Uncle Larry, more money is needed to reach completion:

“Aloha! As of today (March 23) the Veteran’s Center is 70 percent complete. We need $200,000-$250,000 to finish turnkey projects.

“What needs to be done includes drywall inside, all kitchen appliances, a grease trap, ceiling fans, bathroom fixtures, paint in and out, parking lot with infiltrators, 23 parking space, a flag pole, sewer hook-up, furnishing, etc., etc.

“And then, a big grand opening luau! Mahalo for all who kokua to this endeavor.”

Akua Bless,
Larry Helm
