Hoblitzelle Foundation Gifts $100,000 to Coronavirus Fund

United Way of Metropolitan Dallas has been a constant pillar of community support for over 90 years. We have supported our local community though conflict, celebration, and now, through a global health pandemic. As Coronavirus affects our friends and neighbors in various ways, United Way remains committed to improving lives for North Texans in both the immediate and long-term future.

Last week, we launched the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund. With great appreciation, we announce The Hoblitzelle Foundation has generously invested $100,000 to provide assistance to some of our most vulnerable North Texans.

“Hoblitzelle Foundation has been supporting the Dallas community for almost 80 years,” said President and CEO Katie H. Robbins. “While traditionally a funder of capital projects, our support is needed most with agencies working on the front lines to serve our community. We know United Way is well positioned to respond to the critical needs of North Texans during this crisis.”

“We must come together to support this community, now more than ever,” said Jennifer Sampson, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas McDermott-Templeton President and CEO. “Investments like the generous gift by the Hoblitzelle Foundation ensure that North Texans will continue to thrive throughout this global crisis.”

United Way of Metropolitan Dallas is uniquely positioned to work with our non-profit and corporate partners to identify the most effective methods of action, quickly vet each option and deploy funds for non-profit organizations meeting the needs of those who have been hit hardest by this pandemic.

About the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund
The United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund will address immediate needs of all North Texans–as well as longer-term challenges that will affect education, income and health outcomes across our community.

The fund will support current community impact concerns including:

  • Shortage of supplies to meet basic health and safety needs (paper goods, hand sanitizer, cleaning products and potentially food)
  • Extended closures of school, childcare and after school programs, impacting children’s access to breakfast and lunch programs and parents’ ability to work
  • Immediate economic impact for many workers, particularly in the service, retail and travel industries

In the coming weeks, our organization will continue to work with community leaders, including the Dallas County Health Department, school districts and our service partners to identify resource and service gaps and plan for long-term recovery.
