This is the second grant to be approved by the United Way of Selma and Dallas County, with the first being Bosco Soup Kitchen, which is also feeding people as the COVID-19 crisis continues.
So far the United Way of Selma and Dallas County has raised an estimated $21,000 for its community relief fund. The organization has acknowledged several donors to the fund, including Cougar Oil, Alabama Power Company and Jack’s.
