COVID-19 Community Resources

COVID-19 Community Response Fund

Along with the United Way of the Capital Region, we have established a COVID-19 Community Response Fund. The Fund will provide emergency funds to long-standing nonprofit organizations in Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lebanon, Perry and Northern York Counties that are responding to the spread of COVID-19. 100% of the donations to this fund will go toward supporting our trusted nonprofit community partners on the frontlines.
