What is the purpose of the fund?
United Way of Cecil County established this effort to bring relief to the area’s most vulnerable individuals and families in our community as they experience the short-term and long-term impacts of the coronavirus outbreak.
Why did United Way of Cecil County establish this fund?
United Way of Cecil County spent the past month assessing the community’s most pressing needs through reaching out to non-profit agencies with a goal of understanding how these organizations are responding to - and developing solutions to - emergency needs. It was determined that because of the marked increase in the number of people these agencies serve (due to the COVID-19 pandemic) it is within the mission of our local United Way to provide financial resources to support the work of organizations that most effectively serve the people of Cecil County.
What is the goal for the fund?
The goal of the United Way of Cecil County COVID-19 Response Fund is to rapidly deploy resources to local organizations that are offering emergency relief to families and individuals in need.
