HANNIBAL | The United Way of the Mark Twain Area has received a $50,000 investment from the Missouri Foundation for Health for the organization's COVD-19 Response Fund.
“We're both stunned and gratified by this investment in the people of Northeast Missouri. We are committed to putting this money to good use helping the thousands of people affected by COVID-19. We will be good stewards,” said United Way vice president and campaign chairman Forrest Gossett.
Dollars given to the fund are directed to local non-profit organizations that are assisting individuals with their needs during this time. Many local organizations are increasing their services, having to provide services differently or are creating new programs to help individuals with needs due to COVID-19.
