Elks Donation

The Atlantic Elks Lodge #445, through grant funding from the Elks National Foundation, presented a check in the amount of $5,500 to the Atlantic Ministerial Association. This association provides emergency assistance to those in need. The association will provide funding up to $200 to individuals who are in need of financial assistance to pay their rent; to pay a deposit to get into housing; to cover the cost of gas enabling them to get to a job interview, the doctor, or a new job until they have a paycheck coming in; utility assistance; emergency car repair assistance; and overnight accommodations and/or meals in an abusive domestic situation. Assistance requests are directed to the Atlantic Ministerial Association through the Cass County General Relief office or the Atlantic Police Department.
