Donation from Rotary Club of Honolulu Sunset provides supplies for public school students

Over the past 3 years, the Hawaii Keiki: Healthy and Ready to Learn program has received more than $10,000 in total awards from the Rotary Club of Honolulu Sunset to improve the conditions of health rooms and provide much needed supplies to benefit students across the State of Hawaii. Hawaii Keiki nurses decided individually how the donation for their school’s health room could best serve the students. Donation awards are split equally amongst all of the Hawaii Keiki locations.

Funds have been spent on various items ranging from educational materials like books, posters, stickers, and plush toys to health room accessories like light filters, digital speakers, digital timers, fans, essential oils, lamps, pillows, sensory toys, and signs. Medical supplies such as antiseptic wipes, finger splints, lice combs, and health room supplies like clipboards, computer mice, cups, desk organizers, markers, extension cords, folders, label makers and tap and storage trays. Personal hygiene supplies such as soap, chapstick, deodorant, toothpaste, tooth brushes, acne face wash, and lotions and clothing supplies such as slippers, socks, and underwear.

The Hawaii Keiki nursing team graciously thanks the members of the Rotary Club of Honolulu Sunset for their generosity and commitment to improving the lives of our public school students.
