Scotland County Cancer Fund Issues First Benefit Check

A local charity wrote its first check last week to help a Scotland County family. Unlike most benefactors, the Scotland County Cancer Fund couldnít be happier to never have to write another. Unfortunately we all know this wonít be the case, as cancer continues to touch more and more lives in the community.

The volunteer group issued its first benefit payment and has several more applications pending board approval. Typically the charity offers a small monetary gift to help offset travel expenses, medication costs or medical bills for a family dealing with the deadly disease.

As the number of requests begin to grow, the Scotland County Cancer Fund is actively seeking new fundraising options to insure revenue capable of meeting all the needs of local residents.

Chairman Margaret Curry stated the group will soon be selling raffle tickets for a ďlife-likeĒ doll made by Angie Gilbert of Clark County. The toys made by the family of the Clark County Sheriff have became well known in the region as the family donates them to worthy causes. The doll will be on display at various businesses in Scotland County where tickets will be on sale for $1 each or six for $5.

Donations have also come into the group from a number of monetary gifts left as memorials to individuals that have lost the battle with cancer.

Curry noted that the Scotland County Cancer Fund is registered with a new internet service that allows online shoppers to earn donations from more than 500 different stores such as Barnes and Noble, Old Navy and Overstock.com. She stated that individuals simply need to register at www.Igive.com and the website automatically reports all purchases at any of the member stores. The merchant in turn then donates a percentage of the sale to the local charity.

The Cancer Fund will also host an auction and soup supper April 9th at the Memphis V.F.W. The volunteers are seeking donations for the auction. Contact Curry or board members Dave Trueblood, Kim Nicoli, Chris Tinkle or Brenda Wilson.

The organization also is looking to expand the membership beyond just the board members, as more help is needed to organize the fundraisers. Anyone interested in helping the charity can attend the next meeting, set for February 17th at noon at Community Bank of Memphis.
