Helen and Jim Ewing To Help the Elderly and Feed the Hungry In this great community, we don’t often pause to contemplate the gravity of the struggle with poverty and hunger. We may be guilty of forgetting about the elderly who aren’t in nursing homes or who aren’t our grandparents, aunts, uncles, et cetera. As human beings, regardless of your religion or creed, we are called to help those who are less fortunate. At the Rush County Community Foundation, we have funds created for these purposes. The Helen and Jim Ewing Fund: to Help the Elderly and Feed the Hungry, created May 27, 2014, is to be used to award funds each year to assist the elderly or the needy. The funds may be distributed to an agency that provides food for the needy, an agency that supports those serving the elderly populations, or to a non-profit organization that assists the elderly with essential needs and services. Priority is given to a Rush County non-profit or an organization from another county that serve Rush County residents. Organizations that provide services, such as hospice, food pantries, or Meals on Wheels, are also given priority. Jim Ewing began the fund in memory of his late wife Helen who enjoyed supporting causes like feeding the poor and hungry and giving support to the elderly. After 60 years of marriage and service to the community, it was important for Jim to honor his wife with a Fund that would forever benefit the causes in which she was most passionate. In naming the fund, he wanted to include his wife’s name first. The Helen and Jim Ewing Fund: to Help the Elderly and Feed the Hungry Fund was established on May 27, 2014 by Jim Ewing. It is to be used to award funds each year to assist the elderly and/or the needy.
