Dear Friends and Donors,
With the support of our many generous donors in 2020, the Cadillac Area Community Foundation continues to provide support to our community in what has been an extraordinarily challenging year for both our community and our nation.
We live in a community that prides itself in supporting the less fortunate among us as we are indeed all in this together!
At the onset of COVID-19, we provided $25,000 each to Love Inc., in Wexford County, and Community Hope in Missaukee County. These funds supported the need to provide emergency food and shelter in both communities.
Grants received from Consumer Energy Foundation, DTE Foundation, and gifts from generous donors helped us act quickly to alleviate some of our community’s pressing needs and our non-profits resulting from COVID-19.
Along with our financial support to food pantries, we granted emergency funds to Oasis FRC, Munson Healthcare Cadillac Hospital Patients Needs Fund, and Hospice of Michigan. Additionally, we provided masks to CAPS students, facemasks, and hand sanitizer to the extraordinary volunteers working at food distribution centers in Wexford and Missaukee Counties.
We continue to work with our non-profit organizations to find relief efforts and grants to assist them during this uncertain time.
In addition to our contributions to lessen the impact of COVID-19, we continue with our many other community support programs. For our youngest community members, we provide financial support to the Imagination Library that encourages the joy of reading at an early age. For the youth in our community, we provide financial and mentoring support to CACF Youth Advisory Committee. For our future community leaders, we helped support another successful year with the Leadership Learning Lab. We provided emergency support for our veterans as needs arise, and we continue to support our non-profit organization’s services and programs.
Nobody knows what the “new normal” will look like; we can hope 2021 will be a fresh start.
The Cadillac Area Community Foundation gives a special thanks to our generous donors and community partners, together, as we continue to impact lives.
Gratefully, Doreen Lanc
