Now is the time, more than ever, that we must stand UNITED.
United Way of Horry County, Black River United Way, Trident United Way and United Way of the Lowcountry are proud to partner with Waccamaw Community Foundation, Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation, Coastal Community Foundation and Chapin Foundation to support communities in coastal South Carolina that are disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Please join us by donating to the COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund today.
This Fund will provide flexible resources to organizations in our region working with priority groups, including senior citizens, children, health-compromised, and workers in the hospitality and tourism industry.
We anticipate short and long-term effects on our workforce and local economies. By pooling our resources now to support those most affected, our region will be better equipped to respond quickly and sustain that response over the duration of this crisis.
The fund is seeded with $140,000, with support from Coastal Community Foundation, Waccamaw Community Foundation and Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation. We are proud to also have support from regional institutional partners the Chapin Foundation and Gaylord & Dorothy Donnelley Foundation
We are working UNITED to raise as much as we can to meet the current and future needs of our community. Please consider donating.
