The fully distributed Iredell County Response Funds are hard at work in our community right now! 

 

Originally established in March 2020 in partnership with United Way of Central Carolinas, United Way of Iredell County and the Iredell County Community Foundation, a regional affiliate of Foundation For The Carolinas, the Iredell County COVID-19 Response Fund was established to help those most in need through support to nonprofit organizations.

 

The Fund has been administered through a partnership among the three organizations. Grants were awarded by an advisory group of community members.   Special emphasis was placed on agencies which include or are serving historically under-served areas of the county.

Should you need assistance, please call: 2-1-1 or 1-888-892-1162, TTY # 800-735-0533.  This service is free, confidential, and available in many languages 24/7, 365 days a year.

Personal Safety Guidelines and Confirmed COVID-19 Cases:
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued several guidelines to limit travel, gatherings and social distancing. The CDC has launched a website, www.CoronaVirus.gov that details these guidelines and provides an updated account of confirmed COVID-19 cases and their locations.

Anyone in Need of Medical Attention:
If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and develop symptoms, you may need to seek medical attention. North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services has set up a COVID-19 hotline that is staffed by trained medical professionals. Should you have any questions or concerns about the Coronavirus, please call: 866-462-3821.

Community Partners:
We recognize that the Coronavirus could potentially impact the people we serve. If you’re planning to add programming to support people, please reach out to NC 2-1-1 with that information by filling out a Google form HERE. They’re collecting statewide economic hardship resources so that they can best direct people to the places best suited to support them. Grant applications for non-profit organizations will be linked soon.  For more information, please reach out to Liz Burns and lburns@uwiredell.org.
