BINGHAM — Plum Creek Foundation recently awarded a $2,000 grant to the Charlotte White Center to help fund meals for its assisted and supported living program residents. The programs provide three healthy meals and snacks each day to 25 low-income adults who have disabilities ranging from intellectual, cognitive, behavioral and health impairments. According to Kerry Sack, strategic planner of the agency, the programs enable residents to live as independently as possible, according to a Plum Creek press release.

“Other funding for food was reduced, making it extremely challenging to provide our residents with nutritious meals,” said Sack in the release. “Thanks to the help from the Plum Creek Foundation, we can ensure the health and well-being of our residents.”

The grant will go directly towards groceries for residents at each of the Charlotte White Center locations.

The mission of the Charlotte White Center is to provide quality community health and social services for adults, children and families affected by cognitive or developmental disabilities, behavioral or mental health challenges, domestic violence, or acquired brain injuries.
