We would like to share with you how United Way has been involved in the response to COVID-19 over the past week.
- Staff attended a meeting with Forsyth County Schools and Forsyth County Emergency Management to discuss food distribution to our students
Established a COVID-19 Response Fund and updated our website to take donations dedicated to this fund for emergency food and financial assistance needs
Facilitated a meeting of local food pantries and programs to come together to identify areas where food would be most needed and to begin an organized effort of food distribution
Established a list of most needed items
Reached out to our partner agencies to discuss their program delivery and needs during this time
Answered calls from people looking for local resources and made referrals
Working together, we can have the most efficient and effective impact on our community. One way you can help is to donate items listed below. These items can be shipped or dropped off at the United Way Office at 240 Elm Street, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
As we all adhere to the guidelines for social distancing, there are still ways you can support others by checking on those neighbors, seniors, friends and family who may feel especially isolated during this time. Reach out to them through phone calls, emails or stay in touch through social media.
DONATE TODAY! To make a financial contribution to our COVID-19 Relief Fund go to www.unitedwayforsyth.com/donatenow.
We will continue to post updates on our Facebook page @UnitedWayForsyth(Georgia) and our website.
