CLCF Grant to HALO
Updated: Mar 26, 2020
The Christian Leadership & Community Foundation has made a $5,000 grant to Hope & Life Outreach (HALO) of Salisbury, Maryland.
“When we were closing down Joy! 102,5 and moving the office from Princess Anne to Salisbury, we invited HALO to come down and take all of our surplus office furniture, kitchenware, etc. to sell in their thrift shop or use in their own administrative offices. It turns out that each time they go out on a mission like this (approximately 3 times a week), they have to pay to rent a moving truck. At a cost of $100 per trip, that adds up!,” explained Debbie Byrd, Executive Director of CLCF. “This $5,000 grant enables HALO to purchase an enclosed trailer they can pull behind one of their trucks – saving $15,000 a year, or a minimum of $150,000 over a ten year trailer life.”
