NDAD receives $10,000 grant from St. Joseph's foundation

People with chronic kidney disease or end-stage renal disease in 11 north central North Dakota counties are the focus of a new $10,000 grant award to NDAD from St. Joseph's Community Health Foundation.

All funds received will be used to provide fuel assistance to individuals diagnosed with chronic kidney disease or end-stage renal disease that require dialysis and have to travel out-of-town for dialysis appointments.

St. Joseph's Community Health Foundation promotes and supports projects and services that contribute to the mental, physical, spiritual and emotional well-being of residents in Bottineau, Burke, McHenry, McLean, Mountrail, Pierc, Renville, Rolette, Sheridan, Ward and Wells counties.

For 2020, the St. Joseph's Foundation awarded $192,050 in regular grants, including money for organizations, scholarships and food pantries. 

The NDAD award and others originally were expected to be presented during St. Joseph's 21st Annual Grant Awards luncheon in Minot April 2, but the event was canceled because of coronavirus pandemic.
