Green to serve up Project Compassion

Karin Stanton/ Contributing Editor

Have some compassion. Go to Denny’s. Just don’t order double bacon on that cheeseburger or extra chili with your fries … the doctor really is in the house.

The restaurant is teaming with Rotary Club of Kona to host Project Compassion, a benefit for the West Hawaii Community Health Center.

And state Sen. Josh Green will be among those serving meals 3-9 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 18 at Denny’s.

He’s promised to talk story with his customers, which means your root beer float might take longer than usual …

“The West Hawaii Community Health Center is a critical member of Hawaii’s health care safety net and in these tough economic times needs our support more than ever,” said Green, an emergency room physician. “They care for our families, many uninsured children and people who might be down on their luck. The health center never turns anyone away.”

For those unable to attend, tax deductible donations may be sent to:

West Hawaii Community Health Center
