DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) – ADM has announced a $700,000 contribution to support nonprofit organizations and educational programs in the Decatur area through 2023.
This year, almost 30 non-profit organizations and schools will receive grants.
“We are very excited to contribute to and support a wide variety of organizations in the Decatur community. Through ADM Cares, we focus on food security, health and well-being, and sustainable development, and each of our partners addresses at least one of these pillars to improve the quality of life in the community,” said Chairman and CEO Juan Luciano . “Along with monetary contributions, we are delighted to maximize our impact locally by engaging our teams in volunteering with a number of our grant partners.”
In 2023, ADM’s activities in Decatur will include its first partnership with Habitat for Humanity for a housing revitalization project.
