United Way’s COVID-19 fund continues to help those in need

United Way of the Virginia Peninsula’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund continues to serve the growing and immediate needs of the Peninsula community, according to a release from the nonprofit.

This fund provides resources and services to residents affected by the health and economic damage of the pandemic, the release said.

The fund has assisted nonprofit organizations working on the frontlines of the pandemic, supporting the essential needs of economically vulnerable populations hurt by closures, cancellations and/or health issues related toCOVID-19, United Way said.

With the COVID-19 vaccine on the horizon, some funding streams have already shifted from crisis response to relief and recovery initiatives.

The nonprofit community and local human service agencies have seen increased needs for child care, rent/mortgage assistance, and basics, such as food, shelter and medical care. Contributions to this fund are designed to support agencies responding to these issues.
