West Honolulu donation of 180 Masks and 200 Mask Kits 
Last month, 180 Rotary Masks donated by the West Honolulu Rotary Club were delivered to the Palolo Chinese Home by Past President Wes Fong and District Governor Elect Naomi Masuno. The Administrator expressed their gratitude as the 130 residents can use the masks, and the medical masks will be kept for the staff.
Wes and Naomi also delivered 200 Rotary face mask kits donated by the West Honolulu Rotary Club along with personal donations from Wes and Naomi, to the Lanakila Senior Multipurpose Center. Several of the senior members used the kits to sew masks to be given to others. The center serves over 2000 senior citizens and is managed by Catholic Charities Hawaii.

WHR Community Service Project: Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project - Food Distribution at Keehi Lagoon on Tuesday, June 2, 2020; 2:45 pm to 4 pm

Dear Fellow Rotarians,

I hope everyone is excited that Hawaii is moving toward reopening our economy as we are approaching the fourth month of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m looking forward to seeing all of your smiling faces at our TBD meeting place in the very near future.

We have yet another unique opportunity as Rotarians to help those in our community.  Our club has partnered up with the Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project to provide volunteers to help transport food from the vans carrying donated food to the distribution stations at Keehi Lagoon on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, from 2:45 pm to 4 pm. The Club will also provide a cash donation to cover a portion of the cost of the food.

Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project is a John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) student-run free clinic staffed by volunteers, including:

·         University of Hawaii premedical students

·         JABSOM medical students

·         University of Hawaii and Tripler Army Medical Center resident physicians

·         University of Hawaii faculty and community attending physicians

The mission of the Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project is to improve quality and access to health care for Hawaii’s homeless, while increasing student and physician awareness and understanding of the homeless and their healthcare needs. The project was founded in August of 2005 and currently provides free medical services to sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals, through weekly student-run free clinics per at nine sites across Oahu. In addition to these clinics, we also utilize our mobile health van for outreach to other unsheltered homeless populations on Oahu and to provide special events for the keiki at the shelters.

Rotary Club volunteers will be asked to assist in carrying the food to the distribution stations at Keehi Lagoon so there will be no physical contact between the volunteers and the individuals who are expected to appear at this event to receive the food.

If you would like to volunteer for this event or donate funds to sponsor this event, please note your participation by clicking on the doodle link which follows:

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
