CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (June 16, 2020) – As the nation rallies to support the fight against the pandemic, ITC Midwest has committed $175,000 disaster relief funding to support agencies in need throughout its footprint in Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin. In the first round of funding distributed in April, ITC Midwest supported 34 food charities. The company will follow-up in June with a second round of contributions designated for 23 mental health and substance abuse service agencies.
“ITC Midwest has always taken an active role in the communities we serve by offering support beyond providing reliable energy,” said ITC Midwest President Dusky Terry. “During this extraordinary time, there are tremendous humanitarian needs across the Midwest. For our second round of contributions, we felt it was important to support organizations that are focused on improving the mental health and well-being of people throughout our region.”
While nearly one in five U.S. adults will experience mental illness during their lifetime, many people are currently facing unique challenges that are impacting their mental health. ITC Midwest is providing financial support for the mental health and substance abuse support organizations listed HERE.
Through its Charitable Giving Program, ITC awards grants to qualified nonprofit organizations that deliver charitable services in the communities it serves. Grants support programs and projects that reflect ITC’s focus on education, environmental stewardship, social services, health and wellness, and arts and culture. ITC is streamlining the process for its upcoming grant cycles to focus on two areas of giving announced today. For more information, please click HERE.
