Volunteers range from recently retired seniors, WWII veterans and wives, to high school students receiving volunteer hour credits by coming after school. College students also help on weekends (as needed) and special events such as Evening of Aloha. Additionally, volunteer or student groups needing class or group projects are welcome.
