Helping Hand - August 26, 2016 complete interview with the National Federation of the Blind of Hawaii

This week Helping Hand welcomes back the National Federation of the Blind of Hawaii ahead of their state convention October 1-2 at the Elks Lodge in Honolulu. The state convention, recent national convention, their efforts to assist those in need, and ways to support their organization are among the topics as National Federation of the Blind of Hawaii’s Virgil Stinnett, Katie Stinnett and Melissa Scroggins join HPR ATC Host Dave Lawrence.

Helping Hand is a weekly feature airing on HPR1 stations statewide Fridays as part of All Things Considered, and then archived online here, where all of our Helping Hand segments can be found and heard. Each week, Helping Hand connects with an organization, event or topic that offers assistance to the disabled and others among the most vulnerable.
