Agencies awarded grant for food, shelter

Nevada County residents in need of food or shelter will benefit from $21,200 recently awarded to local agencies through the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program, local program representative Terry Winters announced recently.

The grant will be distributed by a local board consisting of representatives of The Salvation Army, the American Red Cross, United Way of Nevada County, Nevada County, the city of Grass Valley, the Jewish Community Center, and St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.

Qualifying organizations are encouraged to contact Terry Winters, board secretary, at 477-7611 for information. The application deadline is Friday (June 25) at noon.
