COVID-19 is rapidly changing our daily lives and continues to impact our community in the CSRA. We’re juggling school and work from home. We’re keeping up-to-date with the news to learn how to best protect ourselves. And we’re trying our best to stay in touch with loved ones from afar. At the same time, we’re acutely aware of the ongoing need for protective face masks through TV commercials and social media. Our first responders, essential workers, and most vulnerable individuals need our help to keep them protected throughout this pandemic.
Mask It Up CSRA is a campaign designed to raise funds to provide protective face masks in line with CDC guidelines to the people that need them most in our community.
Your donation of just $5 will allow us to provide one high-quality cloth face mask made by local employees at Carole Fabrics to a first responder, essential worker, or vulnerable individual living in the CSRA.
Can we count you in?

The New Federal Rules on Charitable Giving
Under the $2.2 trillion stimulus bill known as the CARES Act, there is a new financial incentive that has made it advantageous for many donors to give generously to qualifying charities, including your United Way of the CSRA.
The measure includes a new universal deduction for charitable contributions of up to $300 for individuals who do not itemize deductions. For itemizers, the law also lifts the existing cap on annual contributions, raising it from 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent.
