(LaPorte County, IN) - A major shot in the arm has been given to help people locally during these challenging times.
The United Way of LaPorte County has received more than $600,000. The money is from the Lilly Foundation out of Indianapolis. Dave Sisk of the United Way of LaPorte County called it the largest single donation to the group in its history but it will go fast in the coming weeks from unemployment tied to coronavirus being so high.
The funds are in addition to the 120 thousand United Way of LaPorte County collected separately the past several weeks for its ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts.
