In our community, 1 in 4 households teeter above the edge of poverty. These families are working, contributing to our community, and doing everything they can to stay afloat. Additionally, 1 in 8 families live in poverty with more significant challenges. This means that nearly a third of our population cannot easily weather prolonged economic turmoil. These people are our neighbors, they cannot afford to miss a day of work, they cannot afford a costly doctor's bill.
We can think of no greater priority today than for us, as a community, to ensure that the basic needs of all our friends and neighbors are being met. This is why our Board of Directors has pledged a $50,000 match of donations, utilizing money from our emergency funds to be there for our community in a time of need.
Your support of the United Way NSV's COVID-19 Relief Fund allows us to immediately respond to the community’s developing needs - and help quickly where it is needed in the days and weeks ahead. 100% of all donations made at this time to the COVID-19 Relief Fund will go directly to relief efforts.
Please join me in making a gift to the COVID-19 Relief Fund now. It’s important for our community’s health and for our community’s character.
This is the time to show up for people in need.
