Kokua For the Okadas

Kokua is a Hawaiian word that translates as "extending loving, sacrificial help to others”. Those of us who know Wayne and Debbie know that they have spent their entire lives giving and caring for others. It’s time we give back to them.

 Due to a severe illness, Debbie has been unable to work. Wayne has also been unable to work while he cares for her. Although they would never ask for help, we want to show them the Aloha Spirit by giving back to them. 

We are raising funds to help with medical expenses, treatment costs as well as general living expenses.
