Human Services, Health Organizations and Transit Receive a Majority of Kresge's Nearly $73 Million in First Quarter Grants
Date:4/9/2009

ce award - $1.45 million - went to Mid-Ohio Foodbank. As the state's largest food bank, it distributes more than 29 million pounds of food to 20 counties through a network of 530 food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, homeless shelters and after-school programs.

Another food provider, Open Arms of Minnesota, received an $800,000 award. Located in Minneapolis, it is the state's only agency that prepares and delivers free meals to low-income individuals living with chronic and progressive diseases, including HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, multiple sclerosis and other conditions.

The Salvation Army USA, provides food, shelter, clothing, utility assistance, after-school programs and other neighborhood-related needs. To coordinate these efforts, it has divided the nation into four territories: East, West, South and Central. Kresge has awarded the Central Territory (headquartered in Des Plaines, Illinois) and the Southern Territory (headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia) each a $1 million grant for construction of needed facilities in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Memphis, Tennessee.

A $500,000 award went to Pisgah Legal Services of Ashville, North Carolina. The office has been coordinating a network of 300 volunteer attorneys who provide free civil legal assistance to low-income and vulnerable people for 30 years, including disadvantaged children, seniors on fixed incomes, the abused, homeless and disabled.

"We are trying to help strong organizations do more of what they do best - work on the front lines of human suffering to meet the basic human needs of adults and children," says Rip Rapson, president of the Kresge Foundation. "For these organizations and so many others, the economic crisis means that their clientele is increasing while their charitable support is decreasing. Philanthropy can't provide any silver bullets, but we can try to provide some ballast where it is most needed and can best be used
