Stacie McCabe was nominated by her Islands Hospice colleagues as the July Makana Pono awardee. She directed her $5,000 award to the R.A.M. program at Windward Baptist Church. The R.A.M. program was created in 2005 to help those struggling with addictions, especially crystal methamphetamine, through the power of faith. Islands Hospice is pleased to support the R.A.M program and recognize the work of Windward Baptist Church is doing to care for members of our community who are working towards healing.
