AT&T on Monday morning donated $15,000 to a Detroit food bank that now will be able to provide even more help to those in need this winter.
Cass Community Social Services, a major provider of services to low-income families throughout the Detroit region, received the check from AT&T officials, Kris Young and Robert Jones. State Reps. LaTanya Garrett and Alberta Tinsley-Talabi were on hand for the event.
“Hunger is a serious challenge for many families in our area, particularly during the winter months,” said the Rev. Faith Fowler, executive director of Cass Community Social Services. “Our organization helps to meet the immediate physical needs of people in need, so they can begin to think about working toward longer-term solutions for personal stability and growth. Our food pantry is particularly active over the holidays, so AT&T’s contribution could not have come at a better time.”
In addition to offering a food pantry, Cass Community Social Services provides housing, health services, and job programs.
“AT&T believes every Michigan resident deserves the best possible quality of life, no matter what their strengths and challenges may be,” said Jim Murray, AT&T Michigan president. “Cass Community Social Services shares that belief and works hard to ensure families get the support they need. We are honored to offer our financial contribution to help leverage their efforts.”
