Community Action of Wayne and Medina counties received a donation Wednesday from Kinder Morgan, developer of the Utopia East Pipeline Project, toward its new expansion at Lincoln Way Center, 905 Pittsburgh Avenue, Wooster, and core services, including Head Start, safety programs, parents’ support groups, housing, economic assistance programs, and more.
Allen Fore, vice president of public affairs for Kinder Morgan, presented a check for $5,000 to Melissa Pearce, president and CEO, at the Community Action Wayne/Medina facility.
“Thanks to this generous investment, we can reach more low income residents in the communities we serve,” said Pearce.
Fore, along with other Kinder Morgan representatives, toured the facility and interacted with the children that benefit from the organization’s Preschool Head Start program.
“Kinder Morgan is proud to partner with Community Action of Wayne and Medina counties because we believe in the organization’s mission of connecting people to the basic resources they need, but wouldn’t have access to otherwise,” said Fore. “We are committed to supporting Wayne and Medina counties’ nonprofits, as we have been in other parts of Ohio for over 60 years.”Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter!
