April 2013 – The Monogram Loves Kids Foundation announced today they are accepting grant applications from organizations seeking funding for children-focused programs. The Foundation will be awarding $20,000 for each of the following Monogram locations: Martinsville, VA, Chandler, MN, and Bristol, IN. There will be one $10,000 grant, one $5,000 and two $2,500 grants awarded in each Plant.
The grant money came as a result of a fundraising effort across all Monogram Foods locations for a fundraising event hosted in Memphis, TN. The Meat Me in Memphis annual event showcased products from Monogram Foods and the culinary and creative talents of local chefs, while raising funds for the Monogram Loves Kids Foundation.
Monogram Loves Kids Foundation was founded in 2010 to raise funds for the many children’s charities in Memphis and throughout the country where our team members live and work. Since the foundation was formed, Monogram has made donations to many children’s charities, such as; The Down Syndrome Association, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Boy Scouts of America, Make-A-Wish Foundation, The Ronald McDonald House, The Exchange Club Family Center, and many more.
