The American Red Cross, Southeastern Michigan Region, is proud to announce that it has been selected to receive support from the Masco Corporation Foundation to fund Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces programs which support the military, veterans and their families.
Through a competitive grant process, the Red Cross was nominated by BrassCraft Manufacturing Company, a subsidiary of Masco and a leading manufacturer of plumbing products.
This grant was made possible through Masco’s “America’s Heroes: A Million Thanks” veteran initiative, which is targeting more than $1 million in support to over 50 veteran-focused organizations that provide affordable and physically accessible housing; education, job training and employment initiatives; and related military support services.
“The mission of the American Red Cross clearly aligns with the objectives of our veteran initiative, and we are proud to support its efforts,” said Timothy Wadhams, President & CEO, Masco Corporation. “Masco values the service and sacrifice of our U.S. veterans, military troops, and their families, and is committed to supporting our nation’s heroes.”
“We are excited and thankful to be the recipient of this significant gift, which will help us to continue offering our veterans programs in the communities we serve,” said, La Forice Nealy, Regional Chief Executive Officer, American Red Cross, Southeastern Michigan Region.
