"That awareness drives our continued support of the organizations that do so much for the most vulnerable in our communities."

The program areas eligible for grants through the Daniels Fund include: Aging, Alcoholism & Substance Abuse, Amateur Sports, Disabilities, Education, Homeless & Disadvantaged, and Youth Development.
