WEINBERG FRIENDS PROJECT:
President Elect Paul Saito, Chair
 
Completed project:
Annually the Rotary Club of Honolulu completes a major project with a non-profit organization that serves the "at risk", indigent or homeless population.  This year's project was at Helping Hands Hawaii, where Rotarians repaired and striped the parking lot, painted the interior reception areas, built lothing racks for the donated clothing in the warehouse, and cleaned up the landscaping and building exterior.  At the completion of the project by 25 Rotarians, the Weinberg Foundation awarded a $10,000 grant to the non-profit selected by the project chair.  Completed on September 8!
