Josh Jones with Bourbon County Cars delivered a $500 donation to David Gillen with The Beacon.
“This is a co-op program Bourbon County Cars has with a vendor of theirs (ASC Warranty Company),” Jones said. ” ASC will in turn be donating $500 as well to The Beacon for a total of $1000 donation to The Beacon.”
The Beacon, Inc., in existence for almost forty years, began as churches in the community came together to serve the needs of Fort Scott and Bourbon County.
They have provided those struggling in the community with a food pantry and in offering financial assistance, dominantly through the efforts of community-related donations.
Currently, the organization provides food, financial assistance, and referrals to other service organizations.
