The South Central Homeless Coalition has received a $1,500 United Way Venture Grant to support the annual blessing bag drive.

This year, the coalition partnered with the Jamestown Ministerial Association, Triumph Inc., North Dakota State Hospital and community members to collect and assemble nearly 200 blessing bags of donated essential care items for people experiencing homelessness or other hardships.

As the drive was smaller than previous year, the coalition is grateful for the grant which will be used to purchase additional supplies to fill more blessing bags
