PNC Bank Contributes $100,000 to Coronavirus Fund

While immediate relief for North Texans, including access to food, shelter, healthcare and emergency financial assistance remains top of mind, the coronavirus crisis will have lasting effects on our community. Support from PNC Bank, who has donated $100,000 through the PNC Foundation to the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund, will enable United Way to not only address these pressing needs, but plan for long-term rebuilding.

“Now more than ever, it’s critical we come together in support of our community to navigate the unprecedented challenges ahead,” said Brendan McGuire, PNC Regional President for North Texas. “PNC is committed to this work alongside United Way.”

United Way is working with community and civic leaders to identify the most prominent challenges facing North Texans, deploy resources, and set long-term community goals to ensure all North Texans have the opportunity for mobility, education and healthcare. From fast-tracking delivery of technology and education resources for distance learning to mobilizing food delivery to provide thousands of pounds of food each week, contributions from corporate partners like PNC have helped make an impact in the lives of over 725,000 North Texans.

“PNC is going above and beyond to help their employees and local communities fight the devastating effects of COVID-19,” said Jennifer Sampson, McDermott-Templeton President and CEO of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas. “We’re grateful to be a recipient of their extraordinary generosity at this critical time.”

Together, we can build a better future for all North Texans. Please consider an investment in our community through the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Coronavirus Response & Recovery 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.
