This week on Helping Hand, we’re welcoming back Best Buddies Hawaii to hear about their fundraising/awareness raising Friendship Walk Saturday May 4th 9 a.m. to noon at Magic Island in Ala Moana Beach Park. Join HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence as he speaks with Best Buddies Hawaii State Director Sarah Man about their programs and the many ways folks can support their efforts. Best Buddies is an international nonprofit raising awareness and funds to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities through creating one-to-one friendships, leadership development, and integrated job opportunities.
Helping Hand airs statewide on All Things Considered, and then is archived online here. Every Friday afternoon, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to people with disabilities and people and animals that are among the most vulnerable.
