Area charities to receive funding from Monogram Loves Kids Foundation

The Monogram Loves Kids Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Monogram Foods, announced on Aug. 2 the Chandler area winners for 2017 Foundation grants. Possible grants range from $1,000 to $10,000. A committee of team members at Monogram Meat Snacks in Chandler reviewed each charity’s grant application and divided a total of $30,000 among the following charities: Marshall Food 4 Kids — The grant will be used to help fund their Head Start Program which provides weekend food for the children enrolled in the program and Murray County Central — The grant will fund the purchase of healthy snacks for the children in the Murray County School District.

These above recipients, headquartered within 100 miles of the Monogram Meat Snacks plant in Chandler were among many worthwhile applicants who applied for these charitable funds. A committee of Monogram Meat Snacks team members decided how to allocate grant funds without any influence from upper management.

The Monogram Loves Kids Foundation was created in 2010 to give back to the communities in which Monogram team members live and work. Since 2010, Monogram Loves Kids has donated almost $1 million to various children’s charities across the United States.
