Assisting those who help us

Every little bit counts in terms of funding during this seven-month COVID-19 pandemic. For some area businesses and agencies, that small number is a huge life preserver.

Last week, the Warren County Commissioners approved more than $500,000 in funding from the CARES Act. “(We) wanted to make sure we are able to help as many businesses to the greatest extent possible,” said Jim Decker, president/CEO of the Warren County Chamber of Business and Industry.

The most recent round of awards included these entities: Nelson Hauling, $20,838; Hebner’s Towne Styling, $565; Youngsville Public Library, $6,678; Servicemens Home Corp., $48,000; Cody Well Services, $15,827; Lander VFD, $6,530; Jz Conductor Train Station, $41,710; Love INC, $8,150; Chestnut Oil LLC, $11,476; Lather Salon, $7,328; TurtleMade, $3,043; Skylon, Inc., $80,000; Warren YMCA, $55,000; Gerald Schoenborn DMD PPC, $13,013; Forester Restaurant, $17,500; Valley Tool & Die, $13,180; Mead Oil LLC, $15,658; Mead Drilling Company, $38,414; Peterson-Blick Funeral Home, $18,596; Anderson Well Services, $1,212; Icyy Ink, $8,000; Shear Madness II, $14,280; Sheffield Sports Boosters, $9,195; Warren Sports Boosters, $4,800; Kylander Oil Co., $34,522; Whilton Oil & Gas, $21,247; Sheffield Timber Service, $24,587.

All of our lives have been turned upside down since March. Each name on this list for funding is a community partner that has invested in where we live for many years through creating jobs for others or contributing to bettering our region. It is well deserved.
