Variety the Children’s Charity was recently awarded the inagural $100,000 grant from Impact100 Oakland County, a women’s philanthropic group. Grant funds will be used to support the Variety Feeds Children program.
Variety the Children’s Charity provides nearly 1,000 Pontiac elementary students who are at-risk of weekend hunger with nutritious, easy to assemble meals to allow children to grow, learn, and live healthy lifestyles. The grant will expressly fund the purchase of weekend meals for an additional elementary school (approximately 330 children) in the Pontiac School District for three years. Working with Oakland County law enforcement and Sheriff Bouchard, the food is distributed by officers and Variety volunteers. The unique pairing of food distribution and law enforcement provides physical sustenance to the children while nourishing the needs of both school and community.
