Portage Health Foundation holds community meeting about relief fund

Portage Health Foundation began processing the first 90 relief fund applications this week. They are working with the U.P. Builders Association finding contractors to repair flood damaged homes. PHF will begin matching contractors with homeowners and distributing smaller monetary reimbursements to flood victims in the next few days. They urge every flood victim to apply for aid no matter how much or little damage they experienced.


In a press release from this morning, the hospital announced they have signed a non-binding letter of intent with UP. Health System.


A non-profit store in Chocolay Township is helping hundreds of families this summer. The New Free Store serves more than 500 families from across the Upper Peninsula and beyond.



The PHF is holding a community meeting Thursday, July 19 at 6:00 p.m. at the Lake Linden School Auditorium. This meeting is an opportunity for community members to learn more about the PHF funding process, ask questions and voice concerns.
