United Way Back 2 School Project
We keep hearing that these are uncertain times, and that is most definitely true. However, one thing is for certain: Whether they return as normal, change schedules, or continue distance learning, students will return to school in some form this fall. And many of them will not have the supplies they need to complete their class work.

With layoffs and reduced hours due to the pandemic, more families than ever will probably need our help getting ready to go Back 2 School.

That's why we're continuing our Back 2 School Project by purchasing school supplies to deliver to all of the elementary schools within our 8 counties. And we need your help! For as little as $25, you can help up to 12 students with the basic supplies they need to do their work this fall. Will you donate now to help us make that possible?
Welcome, Monroe County!
In case you missed the announcement, Monroe County is now part of the United Way of Northeast Mississippi family.

Patti Parker was the executive director of the United Way of Greater Monroe County for 20 years. Earlier this year, she decided to join our team to fill the role of Director of Donor Engagement, and Monroe County merged into our United Way.

We are very excited about the possibilities for donors and nonprofits in Monroe County!
Thank You for Supporting Families
Thank you again to everyone who has donated to the United Way and CREATE Foundation COVID-19 Support Fund .

Thanks to you, over 1,000 families have received $140,000 in assistance with food, medication, diapers, formula, and utilities; food pantries across our region have been able to purchase additional food; and 1,000 meals were delivered to the hardworking staff at the NMMC COVID-19 unit through Feeding the Frontline . Thank you so much!
Continuing to Adapt to the "New Normal"
For almost two months, our staff have been working remotely in order to reduce our exposure to one another and the public. Now, we are beginning to transition back into the office with procedures to maintain social distancing. However, our office is still closed to the public at this time in order to protect our staff and others. If you need to meet with one of our staff members, please make an appointment first, and when possible, consider continuing virtual meetings. We appreciate your continued support!
