The United Way of Pettis County established a fund to provide financial support to local nonprofits for their extra-ordinary and unprecedented expenses related to Covid-19. Our social services nonprofits, which make up the core of our Community Safety Net, provide for many basic needs, including food, clothing, and shelter. The fund we created, United Way of Pettis County Covid-19 Emergent Needs Response Fund, provided microgrants to local nonprofits with these emergency expenses. Their additional expenses helped with the increased need to help take care of basic needs such as food, shelter, medical co-pays, supplies needed to keep service providers operational and closing the gap on the needs that arise due to the implications of Covid-19.
