Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
We received notification today that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will provide financial assistance of up to $7,000.00 for COVID-19-related funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020. This program is scheduled to begin in April 2021. Additional information to include eligibility criteria and program restrictions can be found on the FEMA website at: https://www.fema.gov/disasters/coronavirus/economic/funeral-assistance. FEMA will be setting up a dedicated toll free number in the near future to answer questions about this program. We will provide an update once that number has been posted on the website.
The Food Pantry
The Barbara Carroll Community Outreach and Development Corporation Food Pantry continues to offer support to Shiloh Baptist Church (New Site) members during the COVID-19 pandemic. Members in need of grocery assistance are asked to notify their deacons or Gale Jones, the Pantry Manager, who will coordinate a specific date and time to pick up the grocery box. Typically, pick up is between 9:30-11:00 AM, Mondays or Wednesdays. Other dates and times may be scheduled if needed.
Members’ request for groceries should note any dietary restrictions (i.e., no pork, red meat, fish, nuts, etc.) and provide their name, address, telephone number and the number of family members to include children to their deacon or Gale Jones at (540) 842-1980. This information is CONFIDENTIAL and required by the Food Bank for their records and will not be shared with anyone. Members may schedule one pantry visit per month. Members who meet USDA Eligibility Income Guidelines will qualify for greatly enhanced grocery boxes packed with USDA commodities.
