Community Foundation Establishes Disaster Relief Fund in Sharp County

ASH FLAT, AR - The Sharp County Community Foundation has established the Sharp County Disaster Relief Fund to help the community recover from this month's tornadoes, according to Martin Carpenter, board member of the SCCF.  "The fund will be maintained and used to help with future disasters that may affect Sharp County as well," he added.

The SCCF is currently accepting donations to the fund and will be accepting grant applications from non-profits, governmental units, emergency services organizations, and similar organizations in the cities of Highland and Ash Flat.

The deadline for the first round of grant applications is March 3, and March 17 for the second round.  Additional grants will be announced at a later date.  Grant applications may be picked up at Liberty Bank in Highland and First National Banking Company in Highland and Ash Flat.  All donations are tax-deductible and should be made payable to the SCCF.
