San Gabriel Academy Students
Build a Playground
More than 30 years ago, San Gabriel Academy began their legacy of service. This year, over 30 students together with their teachers traveled to Hilo, Hawaii, to build an interactive playground for the Mauna Loa Preschool. Leveling ground, pouring cement, installing equipment, painting, and leading out in church were some of the ways this dedicated group served. As always, SGA’s volunteers felt as though it was they who received the biggest blessing. As volunteer Jasmine Campos described, "Not only did we meet wonderful people, but we left with such a sense of accomplishment, knowing we had helped others and served God."
