In March 2008, AlohaCare introduced the AlohaCare Community Conscience Award. This grant program has helped dozens of Hawaii non-profit organizations contribute to improving the health of Hawaii’s communities. Since its inception, the program has granted nearly $300,000 to worthwhile programs such as school running programs and community gardens.
AlohaCare was inspired to create this grant to honor Rev. Frank A. Chong, a founding board member of AlohaCare and our Manager of Government and Community Relations who died on March 8, 2008. "Frank was the conscience of our community. He tirelessly devoted his life to people who are most often forgotten,” said John McComas, Chief Executive Officer of AlohaCare.
