Ford Motor Company Fund gave Wayne State University a $25,000 grant for a nutrition program last September. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic they had to find a different way to assist Auntie Na’s House because they couldn’t do typical volunteer work. They instead decided to send the funds so that they could buy meals directly. This funding will keep the program running into the Fall which is a nice relief for Auntie Na’s House during these hard times.

Key Takeaways:

  • Ford granted Wayne State University $25,000 for a nutrition project, but due to covid-19, students were unable to volunteer.
  • The organization still has $10,000 in cash on hand and will attempt to use it next year when Auntie Na’s Village is finished.
  • With funding from Ford, they were able to purchase 350 meal boxes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency each week.

“Thanks to the Ford Motor Company Fund, they now provide support to the nonprofit’s food distribution efforts.”
