After careful consideration of the current information made available by the CDC regarding the COVID-19 virus, United Way of Midland is working to take proactive steps to implement additional health safety measures.
We have taken the following steps, as the safety and well being of our staff, partner agencies and community is our top priority:
- Our office is closed and staff members are working remotely and are available by email.
- All meetings during this time, including: partner agency site visits, allocation panel meetings and community investment meetings will be rescheduled.
- We have also decided to postpone our Power of the Purse event that was scheduled to take place April 2nd.
Those in need can call 2-1-1 from any phone for a free, confidential referral to resources providing food, shelter, rent assistance, childcare options and other essential services. The helpline is also able to answer questions and provide referrals for COVID-19 related concerns. Simply dial 2-1-1 or visit 211texas.org
