Royal Hawaiian Movers donated time and equipment to move into place five feeding stations and shelters built by University of Hawaii Maui College Construction Academy students for the 9th Life Hawaii cat shelter.
The buildings were constructed this spring by King Kekaulike High School students participating in the program offering building and construction classes to Maui high school students. Phil Johnson supervised and coordinated the construction.
The five structures will be used by the Upcountry no-kill shelter as combination shelter-and-feeding stations to keep cats and their food dry.
Robert Marshall of Royal Hawaiian Movers operates a forklift to move one of the shelters built for 9th Life Hawaii by students at the University of Hawaii Maui College Construction Academy.
Phyllis Tavares, executive director of the nonprofit organization, said it plans to continue the arrangement to have Construction Academy students create structures for the organization.
People can call 9th Life Hawaii at 572-3499 to donate plywood, composition roofing shingles and paint for the building.
