FLORENCE, KY. March 26, 2020 – Northern Kentucky’s Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living at NKADD received $10,000 from the Duke Energy Foundation as part of its rapid response grants for community needs in the region during the COVID-19 virus pandemic.
“This grant will help us expand our ability to address the needs of older adults outside of our regular programs during this pandemic crisis,” said Anne Wildman, Associate Director of NKADD’s Human Services Division. “We are so grateful to the Duke Energy Foundation for this grant, which will help us take care of some of our most vulnerable.”
Through the Area Agency on Aging, NKADD administers state and federally funded programs including Meals on Wheels, In- Home Services, and Waiver Programs that provide care to the elderly and disabled in their homes, along with a variety of other programs.
“We can provide meals, which we supply primarily through Wesley Community Services,” said Wildman. “This grant will allow us to buy products from the store to provide for the needs of our existing clients as well additional older adults who are Northern Kentucky residents, who are calling us every day. We can help fill those gaps.”
“We recognize the immediate, critical needs in our communities which include access to meals and medicine. We’re focused on helping those organizations that are working diligently to aid our more vulnerable neighbors and their families,” said Amy Spiller, president, Duke Energy Ohio and Kentucky.
The Duke Energy Foundation awarded an additional $40,000 of grants to other Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky organizations.
