To satisfy the vital needs of the less fortunate, disabled or elderly and to support self-reliance and self-sufficiency.
Working families often struggle to make ends meet. Families with children, senior citizens, and individuals with special needs must allocate more of their limited resources to meet basic needs and some go without necessities like food or electricity. The Foundation continues to award grants to agencies that support basic needs, such as food, clothing, shelter and other direct aid to low income populations. Some agencies serve the elderly by providing services to help senior citizens live independently. Other agencies offer back pack programs to provide food on the weekends to economically disadvantaged children.
