In 2016, KEIRO initiated an Inaugural Grants Program designed to engage and support older adult Japanese-Americans in Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura Counties. Thanks to a grant proposal submitted by Scott Shinmoto, the Pasadena Nikkei Seniors was one of the Keiro Grant recipients, receiving funding to be used for the core operation of its monthly 2017-18 lunch program, including its annual 2018 New Year’s Party. The PNS is very grateful to KEIRO for establishing the Grant Program and thanks KEIRO for selecting us as a grant recipient.
