The Holidays are approaching! Every year we try to show our referring doctors how grateful we are that they trust their patients to us. We try to show a kind gesture by sending cookies or chocolates, but nothing too extravagant. This year I decided to order custom Pacific Retina CareSM M&M’s. In addition to sending this small gift, we have decided to contribute to charity in their honor.
I wanted to select a charity that makes a difference in Hawaii. I have been pondering this for months. Then last month I saw a news clip on Family Promise of Hawaii. They are an organization with two locations on Oahu. They try to assist homeless families by arranging shelter at local churches and providing dinner and transportation to the churches. Their mission statement is “to mobilize existing community resources to aid families with children experiencing homelessness and help them transition to sustainable independence.”
Since opening our doors in 2009, we have been working diligently to grow the practice. While enduring our fair share of growing pains, I know we are making a difference on Oahu. We are now in a place where we can give back to Hawaii. I am so excited to be able to do this! Happy Holidays to All!
