FFNM Legacy Foundation donates $10,000 to support all in for alpena
Funds will be used to provide relief for small businesses in alpena county
The FFNM Legacy Foundation has announced a $10,000 donation to support the All in for Alpena small business relief grant program. The funds will be used to provide immediate relief to Alpena County businesses hardest hit by COVID-19.
"Once this program was announced, our board called a special meeting to discuss how we might assist," said Mike Mahler, FFNM Legacy Foundation president. "We were impressed that the nonprofits we typically support were banding together to raise money not for themselves but rather for the business community that they rely upon. Our board felt it was important that we do something meaningful. We all know the economic and cultural value small businesses bring to our community. We encourage any individual or business with the capacity to help at this time to consider a donation."
