Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity is partnering with Project Vision
Hawaii, the Kailua-Kona Lions Club and pastor Megan Rohrer from the
Welcome Ministry in San Francisco to put on the Kona Vision Event to
benefit homeless people and other low-income people with their vision
needs. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the
Old Kona Airport Park Makaeo Events Pavilion.
Dr. Susan Senft and
Jenn Brown, staff at Island Eye Care Inc., will administer free eye
exams. Free glasses will be ordered for attendees and later distributed
by the church’s HERO Ministry. The Hawaii Island HIV/AIDS Foundation
will offer HIV/HCV screenings. Lisa Lea, a SNAP outreach specialist for
Hope Services, will assist people with SNAP applications.
Representatives from the West Hawaii Community Health Center will
provide information about services offered at the center and information
about signing up for health insurance. Sarah Huddy from the Kona
Commons SuperCuts will offer free haircuts. A free meal, blood pressure,
and blood sugar screenings will also be offered during the event.
