Project Vision Receives $5,000 to Reach Maui Seniors
Project Vision Hawaiʻi received a $5,000 grant from Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. for free screening events for seniors in Wailuku, Maui.
The goal of the screenings is to increase access to health care among Maui seniors and identify and address vision and health diseases early on.
Project Vision will provide vision screenings, biometric screenings, chronic disease education, fall prevention and overall health assessments to seniors living on Maui.
Two screening events took place in June in partnership with the Wailuku Filipino Senior Club and Living Way Church. A third event is scheduled for July with the Kahului Filipino Senior Club. Date and location details are included below:
Thursday, July 19, 9:15 to 11 a.m.

“We are grateful for support from Alexander & Baldwin that will help us provide much needed health and vision services to our kupuna,” said Annie Valentin, executive director of Project Vision.
“Project Vision provides an important service to our seniors on Maui. We are proud to partner with an organization that’s really helping to make a difference in our community,” said Carol Reimann, A&B vice president for Maui.
Project Vision operates four mobile screening units across the islands – one to serve Oʻahu, Molokaʻi and Lānaʻi, and one each to serve Kauaʻi, Maui and Hawaiʻi Island.
