What's Included


The Kohala Seventh-day Adventist Church and Mission School were built in the 1980’s and still has the original asphalt shingles that are in need of immediate replacement. Volunteers will remove the asphalt shingles and install a new metal roof. Located on 2.5 acres in one of the most beautiful parts of Hawaii’s ‘Big Island,’ this project is an opportunity to experience the beauty of Hawaii while serving others.
