03/15/2018–Wednesday the M&M Area Community Foundation presented a $1000 grant to the Dementia Friendly Community Coalition of Marinette County. Coalition President Megan Rutherford says the organization wants to raise awareness of the needs of those with dementia. The grant will support the Purple Angel Program.
A business that has completed the training will display the Purple Angel on their window to alert persons with dementia and their family members that the business has had the training. For more information on the Dementia Friendly Community Coalition, contact the ADRC of Marinette County.
