Morgan County, IN— The Kendrick Foundation pledged an additional $50,000 to the Community Foundation of Morgan County (CFMC) COVID-19 Emergency Fund to help support local food pantries on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis.
“We are so thankful to the CFMC for setting up this emergency fund to help meet the needs of Morgan County’s most vulnerable, at-risk residents,” said Keylee Wright, Executive Director of the Kendrick Foundation. “We hope others, as they can, will continue to support this effort and donate funds to help our local food pantries feed our neighbors and friends during this unprecedented public health emergency.”
In March, the Kendrick Foundation donated an initial $50,000 to the CFMC COVID-19 Emergency Fund. CFMC dispersed $10,000 each week for five weeks to community organizations providing food to those in need in Morgan County.
