The United Way of Lamar County announced Monday they have created a COVID-19 Crisis Fund.
Executive Director Jenny Wilson explains, “Local United Ways across the country are creating crisis funds to help alleviate the financial burdens that are coming to all of our communities due to the outbreak of COVID-19. We knew we had to respond as well. With the creation of this Crisis Fund, we hopefully will be able to help those families struggling to pay their bills during this time of economic uncertainty. How much we can help will depend on how much people donate. Just like during our campaign, we know that when we unite many donations of just a few dollars, the end result can be quite impactful.”
