United Way has established the COVID-19 Community Response Fund, a dedicated resource for working families affected by this crisis. UWIRC leaders recognize the potential for economic impact, particularly affecting hospitality and service industry workers, is high. The organizations that serve populations in need every day will find themselves under-resourced and facing growing demand. United Way and our partners are working to identify those critical needs and resource gaps to best determine an appropriate response.
A coalition of philanthropy and business partners has joined together to create the COVID-19 Community Response Fund that will rapidly deploy flexible resources to organizations in our region working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the economic consequences of this health crisis.
