The newly established Blaine County Charitable Fund is issuing weekly grants for workers in need of immediate assistance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The fund was established in mid-March by Hailey resident and Sawtooth Brewery co-owner Kevin Jones and Mary Fauth, a nonprofit professional. It does not yet have tax-exempt status but has nevertheless accumulated $138,000 in funding for distribution to those in need of immediate assistance.


“We have been the last resort in some cases,” said Fauth. “They may already have sold a car or turned to relatives and talked to landlords to ask for rent relief. We are looking for people who have dome some legwork on their side first, but we have not declined any applications yet.”
