United Way 2020-2021 Campaign
We all know that poverty is hurting our community and undercutting what we stand for. This is even more evident now during this very challenging time of Covid-19 – our most vulnerable community members are even more at risk. We have seen demand for community services skyrocket since the beginning of the crisis here at home. The need for access to food, mental health counseling, and employment supports has increased. And that need will continue to climb as we help people get back to work and settle into a new normal for our community.
What inspires us is that as a nation, we have all pulled together and looked to how we can help during this pandemic.
Everyone is stepping up and doing what they can to help to ensure no one falls through the cracks. But we have to look to the future, and what our role will be in our long-term community recovery. These issues we have seen in the last few months (food access, senior’s isolation, job security) are not new and will continue to need to be addressed long after we settle into our new normal.
That is why we partner with United Way, they have been on the front line of address these issues. They provide a vital continuum of care for people and families who need support!
