What is Fisherman’s Net?
The Fisherman’s Net is a fund established by our Church many years ago. It’s purpose is to help people in our local community who need essentials and for any number of reasons cannot fund all or part of their bills.
How does it work?
We work with P.E.A.C.E. Inc. County South headquartered in our village. they determine needs that come into their office. Each case has to be approved by our Mission and Outreach before getting the green light to go ahead. We use a voucher system where by emergency food can be purchased at the Dollar General, emergency gasoline at the Circle K, and clothing vouchers may be used only for clothing at our Country Peddler. In addition, we sometimes pay a portion of National grid and rental payments. St. Leo’s Outreach often helps us with these bills also.
How can you help?
When you want money to go to Fisherman’s Net, simply state “Fisherman’s Net” on the memo line of your check. Currently about $10,000 is used out of Fisherman’s Net every year to fund this program to help those in need in our local community.
