It was all part of Founders' day at the Institute of Human Services in Iwilei.
The day honors IHS founder Episcopal priest, Father Claude du Teil who was known for being compassionate to those in need.
Saturday, volunteers painted, planted and made repairs and cleaned up around the shelter.

This is the 35th year IHS has hosted the event.
