Kaiser awards $150K in grants to two Hawaii nonprofits for keiki COVID-19 education

Kaiser Permanente Hawaii has awarded grants totaling $150,000 to two Hawaii nonprofits to help them increase awareness about COVID-19 and vaccine safety among school-aged youth in communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. The Hawaii Science and Technology Museum will use the funds to support its Keiki Heroes program, a community initiative that provides families with fun, engaging, and culturally relevant ways to encourage healthy habits.
