DTE Energy Foundation awards more than $1M in 'holiday help' grants
The grants aim to support families, children and underserved populations.
The DTE Energy Foundation has awarded more than $1M in grants to 10 community-focused organizations in Michigan. The "holiday help" grants aim to support families, children and underserved populations.
Grant recipients include The Children’s Foundation, Community Foundation of St. Clair County, Feeding America West Michigan, Forgotten Harvest, Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan, Habitat for Humanity of Michigan, Meals on Wheels, Oaks Village (Oaks of Righteousness), Pope Francis Center and United Community Housing Coalition. Organizations will use this support to repair homes, deliver meals and support communities.
“At the DTE Foundation, people are at the core of what we do,” said Lynette Dowler, president, DTE Foundation. “We know the most impactful work focuses on positively impacting the lives of those in need. Michiganders can’t thrive without basic needs being met, like food or shelter. Our partners have direct lines to help communities from the ground up. Once basic needs are met, those who are underserved can begin to focus their energy on other parts of their life, like careers and family.”
