With only days before Christmas, The Salvation Army of Livingston County received a pleasant surprise from Meijer’s Community Grant program of $10,000.
With the help of Livingston County United Way, Salvation Army’s Social Services Director Marlena Poff, was made aware of this program and was encouraged by Mathew Lovrenich, Meijer Brighton Store Director and Kerry Sullivan, Meijer Brighton HR Manager, to apply for the grant to help supplement emergency housing funds for this winter.
With The Severe Weather Network closing their doors this year, the local Salvation Army anticipates an increase of funds needed to house homeless residence in Livingston County this winter.
“Thanks to Meijer we will be able to just that with their generous gift of $10,000,” stated a press release.
