Back in the middle of November we told you about the decision of the Hancock County Sheriff's Charity's and Hancock County Commissioner's decisions to step up and keep Hancock County residents warm this winter.

The 2 entities pledged to match donations, with the Hancock County Sheriff's Charity Fund matching up to $10,000 and the Hancock County Commissioners matching up to $20,000

On Wednesday, November 30th, representatives from Dead River presented a check for $2500 to keep Hancock County residents warm. When matched with the $2500 from the Hancock County Sheriff's Charity and the $5000 from the Hancock County Commissioners, this $2500 has turned into $10,000!

They are donating the money to the Thaw Fund through Down East Community Partners. If you are in a position to help, you can make an individual or corporate donation HERE
