The United Way of the Virginia Peninsula seeks help to provide COVID-19 relief.
The COVID-19 emergency fund provides ” flexible resources to nonprofit organizations working on the frontlines of the pandemic, supporting the essential needs of economically vulnerable populations that have been negatively impacted financially due to closures, cancellations, and/or health issues related to COVID-19.
Steven Kast, President and CEO of United Way of the Virginia Peninsula says, “Any contribution, small or large, is immensely appreciated and unites our community for the greater good. There is still a long road ahead, but together, we can make a difference for our neighbors in need.”
If someone is in need of assistance as a result of COVID-19 and resides in the Virginia Peninsula, they can contact a United Way information and referral service.
