The Fund for Halifax County awards grants

The Fund for Halifax County has awarded its third round of grants, thanks to the work of the Halifax County Advisory Committee.  The committee consists of a few prominent members of Halifax County who wish to see the county grow and prosper.  After carefully reviewing the applications received, they chose Triangle Volunteer Fire Department to receive $525 and Halifax County Emergency Services to receive $525.  The committee also chose to award the South Boston Medical Fund in the amount of $475 to the American Red Cross Halifax Branch.  They presented the checks on January 22 at The American Red Cross Office in Halifax.
