The Starke County Community Foundation (SCCF) is pleased to announce a grant from the Hardesty Memorial Endowment Fund, a fund of the SCCF, of $25,000 in support of the new Hamlet-Davis Township Volunteer Fire Station.

Furthermore, it is the intent of the Hardesty Memorial Endowment Fund advisor to recommend a gift of $25,000 for the next seven years following this initial gift, for a total of $200,000.

The Hardesty Memorial Endowment Fund was established by James ‘Jim’ Hardesty at the Starke County Community Foundation in 2005 to support charitable endeavors in Starke County. Jim was dedicated to the Town of Hamlet and the surrounding community all of his life, and the SCCF and his family feel that he would have been pleased to support this building project.
