Partners come together to help area residents

April 28, 2020

Marshall County Crossroads Stellar 2019The Marshall County Crossroads team, working in partnership with the Marshall County Community Foundation, United Way of Marshall County and other community leaders will be launching a $400,000 fund-raising campaign to help individuals in need due to the COVID-19 shutdown.

The shelter-in-place orders have been effective in decreasing the spread and illness of the COVID-19 pandemic locally but having idled much of the service economy many residents are requiring help with food, housing and utilities expenses. The Marshall County Crossroads team that brought the Stellar designation to Marshall County has recognized the need for assistance and working in partnership with the Marshall County Community Foundation, United Way of Marshall County and other community leaders to help raise funds. Local officials from across our Great Hometowns will be asking for donations and directing people to give online at the links on www.marshallcountycrossroads.com.

The campaign will start Wednesday, April 29, culminating on GivingTuesday May 5 and continuing throughout the month of May.
