On Saturday, March 29, from 2-5 p.m. City Limits East Bowling Center will host “Strike Out for a Cause” to raise money for the Community Resources Commission (CRC) Emergency Needs Fund. Proceeds will assist Meridian residents in financial crisis. Most of the CRC funds assist the evicted or have had their utilities shut off, but they are also used for medication, food and bus passes. Over 90 percent assisted are seniors, families and disabled individuals. “Each household has different circumstances, from a medical crisis to job loss to fleeing domestic violence, that are mitigating factors in their crisis,” said Human Services Specialist Darla Jackson.
