  • United Parcel Service Grant to WFF
    Updated On: Mar 04, 2014


    Working Families’ Friend received a $5,000 grant from the UPS Foundation, the charitable arm of UPS.  The grant will be used for a technology upgrade in the Working Families' Friend’s office.

    Working Families’ Friend takes their role as “stewards” of donated dollars very seriously.  Much work is done to gather community resources in order to provide emergency assistance to working men and women during times of unexpected, one-time crisis.  Donor dollars are stretched as far as possible to help as many working people as possible.  This allows little room for expenditures other than direct service.  As a result, much-needed technology updates and upgrades often go unattended.  “This grant from UPS Foundation will allow Working Families' Friend to move its hardware and software forward a decade resulting in faster and more reliable service to our clients,” said Working Families' Friend President, Mike Montgomery.

    Established in 1951 and based in Atlanta, Ga., The UPS Foundation indentifies specific areas where its backing clearly impacts social issues.  In support of this strategic approach, The UPS Foundation has identified the following focus areas for giving: nonprofit effectiveness, encouraging diversity, community safety and environmental sustainability.

    In 2011, The UPS Foundation distributed more than $45.3 million worldwide through grants that benefit organizations or programs such as Working Families’ Friend and provide support for building stronger communities.

    “The UPS Foundation is committed to funding impactful programs that make a meaningful difference in our communities - so we are proud to support Working Families' Friend’s efforts to serve working men and women in their times of crisis,” said Ken Sterned, President of the UPS Foundation.
