Masco HQ Steps Up to Battle Student Hunger

In October, Masco Headquarters and its employees supported Livonia Kids & Families, a small nonprofit that battles food insecurity among students and their families in Wayne and Oakland Counties to ensure students are coming to school ready and able to learn. Through stocked food pantries located in Livonia and Clarenceville public schools, Livonia Kids & Families provides food to more than 2,500 students and family members each month. Masco’s $25,000 donation will significantly contribute to the organization’s mission to alleviate food insecurity in our community.

Moreover, Masco HQ employees took our annual Halloween Costume Contest theme of “Heroes” to new heights in 2023; in addition to dressing up as creative interpretations of heroes in their lives—including fictional characters, historical heroes, military service members, everyday heroes and more—employees also stepped up to be “heroes for hunger” in our community by collecting nonperishable food items for Livonia Kids & Families’ food pantries.

“Masco Corporation has a long legacy of giving back to the community, and Livonia Kids & Families is honored to be a beneficiary of its goodwill. Masco’s generous grant will enable us to provide vital sustenance to individuals and families in need, fostering a healthier and more resilient community,” said Veronica Cruz, Executive Director of Livonia Kids & Families. “Through this collaboration, we are cultivating a community of caring partners and helping to create brighter futures.”
