We kicked off our Souper Bowl of Caring campaign on January 30th. We will have donation locations in Brown and Pike Counties as we approach the Super Bowl. We will be collecting monetary donations and non-perishable food items for our food pantries in Brown and Pike Counties.

Community Services
The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) started September 1, 2022, for all income-eligible households. Applications will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis through May 31, 2023. Households must be at or below 200% of the federal poverty level to receive a benefit from this program. The 30-day income guidelines for LIHEAP are based on Federal Poverty Guidelines, State Median Income and the number of persons living in the household. The income guidelines are as follows: 1-$2,265, 2-$3,052, 3-$3,838, 4-4,625. Check out the LIHEAP link for more information.
