Meeting on drugs in Hana is Jan. 27

Project Ho’omana, a program started by two Hana high school students, will host Maui Community Coordinator Katie Folio of the Tobacco-Free Hawaii coalition for a community meeting at 5 p.m. Jan. 27 at the Hana High School cafeteria.

The one-hour presentation is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Donations are welcome.

The coalition is supported by the Hawaii Public Health Institute. Folio will be spreading awareness and sharing information on youth vaping and the smoking epidemic in Maui County.

Project Ho’omana was founded by Hana sisters — freshman Pristine Perry and sophomore Tyra-Li Perry — as way to share their vision of creating drug-free communities.

For more information about Project Ho’omana, the event, or how to donate, call the sister’s mother, Leinaala Perry, at 214-0362. For future updates, follow the project via Instagram @ projecthoomana.
