Enriching Our Communities Forever

Rusk County Helping Hands Fund

“Helping Hands Fund”? “Good Samaritan Fund”? We weren’t sure what to call this fund when we started it but we knew we wanted to “be there” when our friends and neighbors in Rusk County were in need. Although this fund is very new we have big plans for how this fund will care for those in times of crisis or difficulty. Our future distributions from this fund will be coordinated with other local “do good organizations” in our community assuring those grants get to those deserving and most in need. This fund would be a wonderful destination for those memorial bequests or end of year charitable giving. Or better yet, perhaps you would like your own Legacy Helping Hands Fund named in honor of your family or loved one funded with a estate bequest. Ask us how to make that happen.
