EDINBURGH – Starting Tuesday, December 7, Hidalgo County will host a series of four community ‘Pop up’ events to step up efforts to help residents who may need it, Hidalgo County Judge Richard F. Cortez.
The first event will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Sullivan City Memorial Park in Ward 3. It includes food distribution in partnership with the Rio Grande Valley Food Bank; rent or mortgage assistance; and help pay for utilities in partnership with the Community Service Agency and the Urban County Program.
âAs the holidays approach, we want eligible residents to receive all the financial assistance they may need,â Judge Cortez said. âThis pandemic has strained many people and we have financial assistance available, so we are hopeful that people can stop to eat and we can let them know of any additional assistance they may be entitled to. “
County employees will be on hand to distribute food and provide county residents with rental and mortgage assistance information as well as utility bills.
