Ka’u Community Volunteers aid in constructing covering for ADA ramp at KRHCAI

Posted on



The Kau Rural Health Community Association (KRHCAI) is currently working on a project to construct a covering for their existing ADA ramp with many community members, volunteers from the Rotary Club of Volcano and the 871st Army Reserve Engineer unit of Hilo.

Auntie Jessie Marques, KRHCAI Executive Director has been working with George “Bev” Garrett, President of the Rotary Club of Volcano and the 871st Engineer Company Commanded by Captain Luke Goeckner.  Leslie Isemoto of Isemoto Construction assisted with the Building Permit.

Throughout the month of November, volunteers put together concrete footings, poured the concrete and constructed the ADA ramp overhang During the weekend of November 18th through November 19th, approximately thirty members of the 871st Engineer Co. will be led by the project leader Mr. Jay Zheng during the construction process.  While this project has come together with many volunteers, funding for materials is provided by a grant from the Atherton Family Foundation.
