COVID-19 Economic Relief Fund

United Way of the Mid-South

As our community begins to feel the effects of the COVID-19 crisis impacting our country, our United Way is taking action, and has launched the United Way of the Mid-South COVID-19 Economic Relief Fund. This Fund will offer the community an additional opportunity to join us in supporting essential services for our neighbors who find themselves in crisis, perhaps for the first time.

Now and in the coming weeks, nonprofits in our community will play an increasingly critical and crucial role in providing meals to children out of school, rent and utilities assistance to families experiencing loss of income and lay-offs, health services to our homeless neighbors, and much more.

It’s easy to feel helpless in the face of this pandemic.  But you can help. By donating to United Way of the Mid-South’s COVID-19 Economic Relief Fund, you are providing vital Mid-South agencies with the additional resources they will certainly need to keep our most vulnerable neighbors safe and healthy.

If you would like to have a positive impact upon our community during this COVID-19 crisis which we’re all facing, please make a donation today. If you or someone you know is in need of information or assistance, please call the help hotline, 2-1-1.

Thank you and stay healthy!
