Lawrence County Orgs Seek To Help Local Unemployed

Last updated on Wednesday, March 4, 2009

(BEDFORD) - Lawrence County organizations are pitching in to help out local Hoosiers dealing with unemployment.

The St. Vincent de Paul Society has opened up their church's doors, and their computers, to local residents needing to file for unemployment online.

Officials at St. Vincent de Paul say people who need to either register to start unemployment, or to file weekly vouchers, can stop in the church office or library on Sundays between 3:00 and 6:00pm, and from noon until 2:00 on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Now, the Salvation Army has established a grant program called "Hoosier Help for Hardship," which would help our local Salvation Army apply for up to $27,000 in grants to help local residents.

However, they must raise $9,000 in matching funds in order to apply for the grant.

If you would like to help the Salvation Army, you can call them at 275-5429, or stop by their office at 17th and K Streets in downtown Bedford.
