GM Foundation Grants $10,000 to Youth Program


DETROIT — The General Motors Foundation has awarded Danialle Karmanos’ Work It Out with a $10,000 grant, enabling the non-profit to expand its yoga and nutrition-based youth programing to three new locations in Detroit this summer. The added sites will offer DKWIO’s special youth programming for 10 weeks, June through August. DKWIO will continue to offer their six-week program at four additional Detroit sites.  

The new DKWIO sites have also partnered with Forgotten Harvest this summer, to provide young participants with healthy and nutritious lunches.

“Working with Forgotten Harvest gives DKWIO a great opportunity to further engage with community partners. Our new programs will provide children with the experience of eating fresh food while teaching them the principles of good nutrition,” said Danialle Karmanos, DKWIO founder. “We are very grateful to the GM Foundation and Forgotten Harvest for their leadership in providing Detroit’s children with opportunities to become healthier and stay active during the summer.”

“The GM Foundation extends its commitment to Detroit-area youth through a $10,000 grant to support three of DKWIO’s new programs, and to help provide nutritious lunches from Forgotten Harvest,” Lori Wingerter said, vice president of GM Foundation, a Forgotten Harvest board member.  “These summer youth programs will help children be nourished and active during the summer months.”
