Destination Wealth Management (through its charitable foundation, Kekokua) has adopted an initiative to give AEDs to schools in need. After conducting an onsite CPR/AED training, DWM was surprised to learn that many schools do not have an AED on site.
DWM (through Kekokua) began this initiative in the summer of 2017, and so far have donated to the following schools: Oakland High School, Bret Harte Middle School, Claremont Middle School, Edna Brewer Middle School, Frick Middle School, Montera Middle School, Roosevelt Middle School, Urban Promise Academy, Westlake Middle School, West Oakland Middle School, Dewey High School, Madison Park Academy, Oakland International High School, Ralph J. Bunche Academy, Melrose Leadership Academy, Greenleaf Elementary, Hillcrest Elementary School, Parker Elementary School, OUSD Health & Wellness and OUSD Enrollment Welcome Center.
“It is Destination Wealth Management’s honor to provide a greatly needed device to schools. We believe an AED can be a life-saving positive addition to schools and educational institutions. We are privileged to help in this initiative,” as stated by Michael Yoshikami, CEO of Destination Wealth Management.
To date DWM has donated over $40,000 for AEDs in schools. We continue to expand the program and have made it a significant mission to place devices in schools lacking this important medical technology.
