Group faces deadline to raise money for shelter

August 01, 2007

HANCOCK - Debbie Cohill is facing a unique opportunity as well as a critical challenge - the need to raise $9,500 by Monday.

The Interfaith Service Coalition in Hancock has raised $91,500 toward the renovation of the Good Samaritan House, a duplex at 6-8 W. High St. that the coalition bought in June and will be working on as an emergency shelter.

Cohill, executive director of the coalition, said the house could be used by fire victims and others who need emergency housing.

"In order to be eligible for a September grant from a group in Baltimore, we must raise $100,000," Cohill said. The deadline is Monday.
