NDAD awarded St. Joseph's Community Health Foundation grant
Published: Thursday, March 15, 2018
NDAD wishes to thank St. Joseph’s Community Health Foundation (SJCHF), which has awarded a $5,000 grant to our charitable nonprofit to help fund direct financial assistance to people with disabilities and health issues in the Minot region.
Marsha Dupré, NDAD’s client service representative in Minot, accepted the check on the organization’s behalf during a special St. Joseph’s awards luncheon March 14 at Minot's Grand Hotel.
The grant money will be used during 2018 to help NDAD clients living in the counties of Bottineau, Burke, McHenry, McLean, Mountrail, Pierce, Renville, Rolette, Sheridan, Ward and Wells, which also is SJCHF's service area.
The NDAD grant money may be used for direct assistance purposes such as prescription medications, durable medical equipment and supplies, out-of-town medical expenses, home and vehicle accessibility, in-town transportation fees, personal attendant care expenses and adaptive recreational activities.
In all, St. Joseph's distributed gifts totaling more than $400,000 to a wide variety of nonprofit organizations. Those gifts brought SJCHF's total distribution to $6.9 million, according to its website, http://sjchfnd.com.
SJCHF's mission is to promote healthy and sustainable communities by providing financial gifts, strengthening collaborative relationships and supporting local initiatives that impact the mental, physical and spiritual well-being of residents in its service area.
The foundation also serves as a resource and catalyst to promote and stimulate voluntary financial support especially in the building of endowments that will address the long-term needs of communities in North Dakota, its website states.
