United Way of Pioneer Valley announces Recovery & Relief Fund for COVID-19
Our response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
SPRINGFIELD (MA) — United Way of Pioneer Valley has established the COVID-19 Recovery and Relief Fund to provide aid and resources to those affected by the current public health emergency. As the pandemic unfolds and schools, events and workplaces close, hourly, low-wage workers and many others will experience unprecedented financial hardship. In Massachusetts, two in five workers lack sufficient savings to withstand a sudden loss in wages.
Funds collected for this Emergency Relief Fund will help families and individuals impacted by the pandemic to meet their basic, childcare, housing and financial needs. This emergency relief fund will also help to continue our programs such as Thrive and especially Mass2-1-1: a free referral hotline providing access to services such as emergency assistance and real-time COVID-19 information. Individuals can dial 2-1-1, United Way's 24/7 information and referral hotline, from any Massachusetts number to get information related to the virus.
