Grant Helps Makak­ilo Project

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - West Oahu Islander -

Thanks to a grant from First Hawai­ian Bank Foun­da­tion, Easter Seals Hawaii now has an ad­di­tional $20,000 to go to­ward a new project — the in­stal­la­tion of a com­mer­cial kitchen at its Na­puakea Makak­ilo multi-pro­gram center.

The center pro­vides area res­i­dents with ac­cess to in­di­vid­u­al­ized fam­ily-cen­tered ser­vices for in­fants, chil­dren, adults, and se­niors with de­vel­op­men­tal dis­abil­i­ties and spe­cial needs.

Easter Seals plans to use the com­mer­cial kitchen in con­junc­tion with its Adult Day Health pro­gram to en­able par­tic­i­pants to pre­pare food prod­ucts for sale.
