United Way adds matching funds of $50,000 to relief fund
United Way of Northern Shenandoah Valley’s COVID-19 Relief Fund has already raised $102,745, around half of which was a matching fund of $50,000. United Way’s board of directors has decided to tap into emergency cash reserves and add another potential $50,000 of matching funds. New donations to the COVID-19 Relief Fund will again be matched dollar for dollar. 100% of donations will go directly to nonprofits in the Shenandoah Valley.
So far, United Way has issued over $61,000 in grants to 13 nonprofits in the region. These grants have gone to help with food supplies, prescription and medical supplies, mortgage payments, child care and more. Janet had a conversation with Elise from United Way NSV on a recent episode of The Valley Today. The two discussed the fund, the disbursement and the current state of need in the community.

If you would like to help, donations can be made on United Way’s website.
