Indiana Michigan Power, on behalf of the American Electric Power Foundation, has announced issuance of grants totaling more than $700,000 to help communities in Indiana and Michigan amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The funds throughout Indiana and Michigan will be available to local not-for-profits to support basic human needs such as housing assistance, shelter and food for those in need and senior citizens across I&M’s service territory.
Toby Thomas, I&M president and chief operating officer, said by partnering with local organizations, and through the generosity of the AEP Foundation, the efforts will have lasting benefits for the people and families in I&M’s region.
St. Joseph County United Way was one of three recipients in the Michigan portion of the company’s service area. The Centreville agency was given $20,000, I&M officials said.
