The GIANT Company announced more than 100 recipients of its emergency grant program. Announced last month in partnership with Team Pennsylvania, The GIANT Company originally designated $250,000 for the program, but due to the overwhelming response, the company decided to double the amount of funding available to $500,000. In all, the company is awarding 110 grants to help support small businesses in Pennsylvania’s food supply chain impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“Reviewing more than 500 applications from small businesses across the commonwealth confirmed that we knew in our hearts: that the pandemic having a distasting impact on our small business community,” said Nicholas Betram, President of The GIANT Company. “We’re inspired by the strength and stories of these local businesses that in many cases have been serving our communities for generations. As a company focused on connecting families for a better future, doubling the funding to $500,000 was an easy decision because it meant we could provide more hope and help to these heard-working families and let them know that they are not alone.”
