Several nonprofit organizations received a big gift Monday at a presentation downtown at Tamarind Square.
The Aloha United Way and the Hawaiian Electric Industries Charitable Foundation donated 10 electric smart cars to the non-profits. The recipients were chosen based on their best use of these vehicles.
“They get to use them forever,” said AUW president and CEO Cindy Adams. “The really cool thing about it is is when we think about how we can give and support non-profits, it’s usually with time and financial donations. Providing EVs not only supports the work of the non-profits, but it’s also done in a socially responsible way.”
There were also giveaways and information stations on EV initiatives at the event.
