A Message from Joe Young, United Way Board Chair, and Amanda Burt, President
We hope you and your family are doing well and navigating the changes we are all experiencing related to Covid-19. As we continue to navigate the crisis in our own community that has gone on much longer than any of us could imagine, we wanted to provide another update to you on the work of United Way through our Covid-19 Response and Recovery Fund. We are here – serving our community – when you need us most.
Times are so uncertain right now, and it has been far from “business as usual” for many in our community, especially for corporations, small businesses, and our school systems. Many are facing budget cuts, decreases in staffing, limited inventory, and other unique challenges. United Way and our community partners are no exception. We have had to make some difficult decisions along the way, but more than anything, we want our community to know that we are still in business-- the business of Building Better Futures.
Today is Mother’s Day. During these unprecedented times, I think we could all use a reason to celebrate the amazing women in our lives!
For many moms, these times have been even more challenging as they have taken on new roles - homeschooling their children, tending to daily household tasks, and for many mothers, also working from home.
