DOWNTOWN HAPPENINGS AND GOOD TO KNOW INFO!
KERSHAW SPRINGATHON 2021
Kershaw’s Annual Springathon, sponsored by the Kershaw Chamber of Commerce, is coming on Friday, May 7, 2021!
This years event will be on Friday night only. It is set to run from 6pm-9pm. There will be Food Vendors and a Live Band on Hampton St (Main St).
The Kershaw "Cruise In" will be held from 5pm-9pm on Hampton St. on Saturday May 8, 2021.
COVID-19 FUNERAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
THERE IS NEW INFORMATION REGARDING THE COVID-19 FUNERAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM. IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW HAS LOST A LOVED ONE DUE TO COVID-19, THIS INFORMATION MAY BE VALUABLE.
The registration line for COVID-19 funeral assistance will open Monday, April 12. An overview is available at https://www.fema.gov/.../coro.../economic/funeral-assistance; see also FEMA’s funeral assistance policy for additional detail.
Documentation needed to support an application for assistance will be:
• An official death certificate that attributes the death directly or indirectly to COVID-19 and shows that the death occurred in the United States, including the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.
• Funeral expenses documents (receipts, funeral home contract, etc.) that includes the applicant’s name, the deceased person’s name, the amount of funeral expenses, and the dates the funeral expenses happened.
• Proof of funds received from other sources specifically for use toward funeral costs. FEMA is not able to duplicate benefits received from burial or funeral insurance, financial assistance received from voluntary agencies, government agencies, or other sources.
FEMA and its contractor will be administering the application process and distribution of assistance funds, so SCEMD is not likely to have additional information beyond what FEMA presents on its web pages, and we will not have access to information about individual applicants. If questions or issues arise, we will, however, support addressing those with FEMA.
