Mike & Mary Terry Donate $250,000 to Coronavirus Fund
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.
