Nine non-profits to split $350,000 in Isaac grants

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Feed My Sheep administrators drove away from Allen Toyota on Thursday with a new Sienna.  They're pulling up to the Knight Non-Profit Center Monday afternoon to pick up a pretty significant grant check.

The Gulf Coast Community Foundation's Chevron Hurricane Relief fund will split $350,000 between nine non-profits groups in South Mississippi.  The grant recipients include:  Feed My Sheep, Youth Build/IRD, Manna Ministries, Hancock County Resource Center, Our Daily Bread, Samaritan Ministry, Christian Care Ministries, Hancock County Food Pantry, and Hope Haven.

Rich Westfall is president of the Gulf Coast Community Foundation.  "We appreciate the generosity and commitment from Chevron to assist our Gulf Coast residents impacted by Hurricane Isaac," said Westfall.

The grants will help non-profits provide food, clothing and temporary shelter to storm victims in Pearl River, Harrison, Hancock and Jackson Counties.  The financial donations will also make it possible for several hurricane damaged homes in Pearl River and Jackson Counties to be restored.

"The Gulf Coast Community Foundation is honored to administer these relief funds," said Westfall.
