A MESSAGE FROM OUR BOARD CHAIR

"2020 will be a year we will never forget. Our community faced so much uncertainty and loss as we all weathered the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and no one could have predicted how many people in our community would need help. 

 

During this time of great need, we thank you so much for giving us your time, energy and generous support at United Way of the CSRA as we provided relief to thousands of local children and families. This past year, we saw a huge increase in need and your efforts allowed us to impact more than 112,000 local families with emergency assistance and resources in the areas of food, shelter and basic needs, physical and mental health, educational enrichment, childcare and much more through our COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. In addition to that, more than 480,000 local families were impacted through campaign program support and other initiatives.

 

2020 may have just changed us all forever, but one thing we've all learned is to be resilient and generous toward those around us. And we're so grateful that you've done just that."
