A local organization will receive financial support from a Michigan insurance company amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan will donate $500,000 to support community organizations, such as Kids’ Food Basket, to provide meals to children and support efforts to protect seniors and other individuals.
“Blue Cross has been actively engaged in school-based nutrition programs for more than a decade in Michigan, so we know the urgent need that some kids have to get their meals at school,” said Daniel J. Loepp, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan president and CEO. “It’s critical to identify and feed these vulnerable kids while school is out. The community’s response to this pandemic is incredible. All of this work reinforces that we can best overcome this crisis by working together.”
Along with Kids’ Food Basket, the United Way of Southeastern Michigan, Father Fred Foundation, Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, Greater Lansing Area Food Bank and Superior Health Foundation will benefit from the contribution.
