Cookout to raise cash for local homeless grant
Clark County Community Services will hold a cookout at Fairview Market on East Washington Street from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday to raise money for a $50,000 grant to assist homeless persons in the community.
Community Services must match the $50,000 dollar for dollar by Aug. 1 or lose the grant, and this week the group was about $9,000 short of its goal.
Community Services operates the local "needs center" that provides a variety of relief to the poor as well as programs to help the needy become more self-sufficient.
