Relief Fairs Provide Informational and Assistance Opportunities

Locals had the opportunity to visit with a number of agencies and businesses on Monday and Tuesday nights as the community-based relief committee of Winston Strong sponsored “relief fairs” at Liberty Church in Noxapater and the First Baptist Church in
Louisville. Winston Countians that may have suffered losses in the April 28 storm were given the opportunity to visit with FEMA, MEMA, SBA, Mississippi Department of Human Services, representatives of the Mississippi Department of Insurance and a multitude of businesses that provided services such as storm shelters and insurance claims assistance.

Citizens were also able to discuss their status with case managers of Winston Strong to apply for and to learn what assistance may be available for long-term relief. You can find out more about Winston Strong at their website at http://www.winstonstrong.org/or visit their Facebook page at Winston Strong.
