United Way of Weld County (UWWC) and the Weld Community Foundation announced that donations to the Weld Recovers Fund: COVID-19 Relief are at $100,281.
UWWC and the Foundation launched the fund in March to provide financial resources to charitable organizations in Weld County that are involved in supporting populations affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
Jeannine Truswell, President/CEO of UWWC, and Rand Morgan, President/CEO of the Foundation, emphasized that a donation of any amount helps. The funds are being distributed to nonprofit organizations helping people directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic such as: vulnerable populations, particularly homeless communities; those at imminent risk of homelessness; low-income households; older adults; those experiencing food insecurity.
“We understand the COVID-19 pandemic is having and will continue to have a significant impact on individuals and families in northern Colorado,” said Morgan.
“We are working to move resources as quickly as possible to community-based organizations that are directly supporting local families and residents who are most affected,” Truswell said.
One-hundred percent of donations are being distributed based on the decisions made from a committee composed of board members from UWWC, the Foundation and volunteers from the community. No administrative fees are being charged to the relief fund and all processing fees are being paid by UWWC and the Foundation.
