|Dear United Way of Greater McHenry County Friends,
Today, I want to offer you HOPE. You may have heard me talk about this word before – one of my favorites. Just like all of you, I am trying to understand how the spread of COVID-19 affects our daily lives, our friends, our families and our communities. These are most definitely trying times, but also a time when we get to see the very best in people – and that brings me HOPE. I have been amazed by the stories of citizens pulling together, and people stepping up in the most remarkable ways.
I wanted to reach out to you and let you know that United Way of Greater McHenry County is also stepping up and taking serious measures to support our local community. As you know, we think #CommunityFirst. With that in mind, we have partnered with The Community Foundation for McHenry County and set up The McHenry County Community COVID-19 Response Fund.
McHenry County nonprofits are supporting our local residents and those who are most vulnerable. Many have programs that are being temporarily cancelled, offices that are shutting down, and interrupted services.
What can you do? Help us spread the word and donate if you can!
