CAP will receive $33,000 to support preventative child abuse programs for second, fourth and sixth graders. Senior Citizens of Humboldt County will receive $17,000 in funding to go towards the purchase of a new truck to be used to deliver meals to elderly residents in that region. This funding brings UWNNS’ total allocations to $700,000 for the year.
“United Way is pleased to be able to provide this additional funding to support critical services in our region,” said Karen Barsell, CEO and president of UWNNS. “Like our previous funding we released in April, these are two substantial financial amounts that will help create a positive impact in the community by ensuring that people have the basic building blocks for a good life.”
As additional funds are released by the UWNNS board of directors, its volunteers will review the current priorities of our communities’ need and allocate those funds appropriately.
