ELIZABETHTOWN (KY) — Members of city government in Elizabethtown spent part of their morning giving back. Members of the council, as well as administrative staff, met with various community organizations to pass out grants as part of money allocated to the local government through the CARES Act.
Streck says the $25,000 grant will help them to support residents in need of rent support and utility assistance, among other needs.
The group stopped at 6 different locations throughout the city, with another stop taking place at Mission Hope For Kids. Executive Director Nelle Thomas says the grant is more important than ever with the lack of donations during the pandemic.
The funds that were given out were secured by 2nd District Congressman Brett Guthrie.
