THANK YOU FOR CONTRIBUTING TO THE COVID-19 COMMUNITY RESPONSE FUND FOR HASTINGS & PRINCE EDWARD COUNTIES.
Hosted by United Way HPE in partnership with Procter & Gamble, not-for-profit entities, and individual donors, the COVID-19 Community Response Fund will allow us to rapidly deploy resources to community-based organizations that are offering emergency relief to families and individuals in need. By joining forces with our corporate partners like Procter & Gamble, we’re able to leverage the resources available and quickly get them into the hands of people who need them the most.
Together, we will be:
- Supporting the provision of basic needs such as food and supplies to community members, primarily through the provision of funding and product to agencies who already have the infrastructure in place for distribution such as, but not limited to, food banks.
- Supporting the provision of basic needs through volunteerism to assist agencies and organizations providing services to community members during this difficult time
- Assisting agencies with operational funding gaps for health and human service agencies so they can continue to provide the supports that are vital to the resilience of community members through these times
- Support longer term needs such as providing additional funding to emergency financial assistance programs to assist with the prevention of utility disconnections and evictions; as self-isolation and provincial mandates demand the closures of business we are going to see a tremendous number of individuals and families in financial crisis.
