The Knox City Council responded to a request from Community Services of Starke County for $500. The organization told the council that the money would be used to provide services for senior and low income families within the city.
Some of those services include call-a-day, transportation, outreach nutrition, food pantry, and home health assistance.
The council voted unanimously to provide the monetary request. The contract will be effective from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31.
