Moira's Message: COVID-19 Results Roundup

Here is what we've been able to accomplish thus far.
July 20, 2020

Dear United Way friends,

The first few months on the job were educational, exhausting, joyful and so much more, all rolled into one. Mostly, I am proud of the work we performed in responding to this community.

Whether it be the COVID-19 Regional Response Fund we activated with Greater Cincinnati Foundation, the partnerships we developed with grassroots groups and faith-based organizations to distribute more than 1 million masks and sanitizer, or our direct relief work getting $160,000 in gift cards to nearly 4,000 local residents, we made a difference.

We know you want to hear more frequently about the impact of your dollars. We know you also love stories of success. We put together a little roundup, below:

When the Brighton Center experienced a 300 percent increase in the number of people seeking help, we responded.

When those in local nursing homes felt isolated, we sent iPads their way so they could communicate with their families.

When Bethany House needed to move 40 single mothers and their children from a crowded shelter, we helped.

We supported the delivery of 7,500 emergency food boxes to seniors in need. We helped food banks. We aided homeless families in Clermont County. We supported child care facilities for emergency personnel in both Kentucky and Ohio.

I’m proud of our work, but I know we will do much more over the coming months and years. Respond, Recover, Revitalize. That is our mission. Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Moira Weir
President/CEO
United Way of Greater Cincinnati
