Thank you, Greater High Point!
At the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, United Way of Greater High Point established the UWGHP Emergency Relief Fund to aid residents impacted by COVID-19. By collaborating with our partner agencies and other local non-profits to determine ongoing needs, these funds have been distributed to help provide COVID-19 impact support to families, children, seniors and all in need throughout our community. The UWGHP Emergency Fund which was in place through May 31, 2020 allocated $241,019 through a grant process to qualified, local non-profits --- grants specifically designed to meet the emerging or unmet community needs, and support innovative solutions to local COVID-19 impact issues.
Thank you, Greater High Point, for responding to the call of action during these difficult times! The challenges of this pandemic have tested the resilience of our community and your compassion to help others who are struggling is a testimony of hope.
The United Way of Greater High Point funds programs at 27 partner agencies, serving High Point, Archdale, Trinity, and Jamestown. Each United Way funded program at our 27 agencies falls into our building blocks to success: Education, Financial Stability, and Health.
