We recently donated $5000 to the United Way. This is how they used some of these funds:
72 year old veteran, called United Way 211 needing help with a water bill. He lives on a fixed income, with upcoming brain surgery. We were able to assist with $671.16 towards his water bill, stabilize his situation and reduce his anxiety prior to his surgery.
Received a call from a 68 year old female needing help with her electric bill. She was on HUD housing and no means to pay her bill. If she cannot pay her electric bill, she is at risk of losing her housing. We were able to assist with $405.00 towards her electric bill. (outstanding bill from years ago and new deposit.) and stabilize her situation.
Thank you all for your support!
