The Detroit Pistons, Wayne County and corporate partners Lineage Logistics, United Dairy Industry of Michigan (UDIM), Flagstar Bank and (AAA) The Auto Club Group recently announced a grant to Forgotten Harvest providing immediate support to the non-profit’s food recovery and distribution efforts in response to COVID-19.
The partners have rallied in deploying funding resources that will aide Forgotten Harvest in covering additional costs for food acquisition, supplies, storage and delivery in response to the current crisis. With children no longer in school and businesses closing as the region practices social distancing, Forgotten Harvest estimates that the number of families it services has increased 45 percent since the crisis began and food acquisition and disbursement needs have doubled.
The Pistons and their corporate partners are deploying financial support to help facilitate the non-profit’s immediate needs while using their platform to rally and inspire additional support from businesses and individuals throughout the region.
