When a new client is referred to Kailua Hongwanji’s Project Dana program, we locate where the client lives and try to match them up with a volunteer that lives in the same area. I meet with the family and obtain a signature on a permission document.
We then schedule a meeting for the new client and their volunteer. I normally attend these meetings to do the introductions.
Recently, due to my family commitments, I was unable to attend a new client meeting. Our volunteer; however, found his way to the client’s apartment and discovered that they were around the same age!
They hit it off – and had a lot to talk about!
