SEMCAC awarded grant through Blue Cross Foundation

Posted in Rushford All

RUSHFORD — Semcac received a $60,625 grant from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota Foundation through the Minnesota Community Action Association Resource Fund to provide for basic needs of low-income families in seven counties in southeast Minnesota.

The funds will allow Semcac to help people whose needs aren’t met by other agency programs. For instance, a low-income worker who needs emergency car repairs in order to get to work could receive assistance.

“With this grant, Semcac expects to be able to support an estimated 225 low-income families who are in need of a helping hand up in our seven county service area,” said Wayne Stenberg, Semcac’s executive director. “In the tough economic times that we are all facing, these funds will provide a welcome relief to households struggling to make ends meet.”

The Semcac grant is one of eight awarded to agencies that provide services to Minnesotans living in the 10 counties with the highest poverty rates in the state. “The Blue Cross Foundation has a history of responding to community needs, and we’re pleased to be able to work with community action agencies to get significant support where it’s most needed,” said Ken Burdick, president and CEO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota and chair of the Foundation’s board.

For more information on Blue Cross’s grantmaking programs, visit bcbsmnfoundation.org or call (651) 662-3950 or toll free at 1-866-812-1593.

Semcac has worked to improve the lives of low-income families since 1966.
