ATLANTA (ABP) -- The Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund has given a $500,000 grant for the hurricane-damaged community of Lacombe, La., where the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and an Arkansas Rotary Club are working together.
Already CBF and Rotary volunteers have restored more than 50 homes in Lacombe. The latest grant, which will allow the partners to expand that work, was awarded to Rotary Club 99 of Little Rock, Ark., according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
Former President Bill Clinton announced the gift Sept. 15 in a ceremony in New Orleans, during which $7.5 million was given to several nonprofit organizations working in Katrina-damaged areas along the Gulf Coast."
