LIHUE — A new business which opened its doors in October collected nearly 200 pounds of food for the Hawaii Foodbank, Kauai Branch.
Dr. Addison Bulosan of The Specific Chiropractic Center, Kauai, said the drive went well.
“People were giving a lot,” said Bulosan, a 2004 graduate of Kauai High School. “We asked for five pieces for which they received a $50 gift card, but people came in with 10 or more pieces.”
Wes Perreira, warehouse supervisor for the Hawaii Foodbank, Kauai Branch, said the collection of 173 pounds of food helps with the greater demand during the holiday season.
“We are so appreciative Dr. Addison selected us to be the beneficiary of this food drive because we can definitely use the food,” he said.
Bulosan said The Specific Chiropractic Center, Kauai, was happy with the result and will plan to do another food drive in April, coinciding with National Food Drive month.
Bulosan said after he earned his chiropractic doctorate, he did post-graduate work studying the upper neck and nervous system, and eventually practiced with The Specific Chiropractic Center in San Francisco.
“But when you’re born and raised on Kauai, there is no place like it,” Bulosan said.
The move led to the opening of the eighth The Specific Chiropractic Center.
“This is pretty unique to have an office on Kauai,” Bulosan said. “There’re only three offices in Hawaii, and only about a thousand across the country which can offer service which other offices have had difficulty with. It’s nice to come home and bring something new and exciting.”
The Specific Chiropractic Center, Kauai is located at 2925 Umi St., Suite 202 in the Hale Opio Building, and is open Mondays through Fridays from 8 to 11 a.m. and 3 to 7 p.m.
