ABOUT THE RELIEF FUND
The United Way of East TN Highlands created the Emergency Relief Fund in 2020 to quickly respond to needs that arose from COVID-19. The fund has been actively used for COVID-19 relief and will continue to be used as such until our region has recovered. So far, as a region, United Way of East TN Highlands has been a part of raising more than $600,000 and helping nearly 70,000 individuals in need through the pandemic.
the future of the fund
Predicting the end of COVID-19 is nearly impossible to predict, but we do not plan to close this fund once we have recovered from COVID-19. The future of this fund is to serve our population through any type of pandemic, disaster or unforeseen circumstances. A donation to this fund is a step towards the next recovery that needs to be made, because while emergency situations are unpredictable, they are also inevitable. In the words of John F. Kennedy, “the time to repair a roof is when the sun is shining.”
