Donors to the WCCF Award $2,500 Grant to Washington County Helping Hands

Thanks to generous donors who have supported the Washington County Community Foundation Disaster Relief Fund, Washington County Helping Hands is the grateful recipient of a $2,500.00 Rapid Response Grant.  The grant money will be used to assist elderly and disabled home owners with repairs as well as continue developing self-help programming for those with suicidal tendencies and addiction.

The Foundation reactivated the Disaster Relief Fund in March to address emerging community needs cause by the COVID-19 Pandemic.  “We knew that fundraising for some of our nonprofits would be negatively impacted by COVID-19,” explained Judy Johnson, Executive Director of the Washington County Community Foundation.  “We reactivated the Disaster Relief Fund and are actively accepting donations to that fund.  Nonprofits directly working with clients impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic, or have been impacted by the Pandemic, are encouraged to apply.  Our goal is to respond to the applicant within a few days.”   More information about the Rapid Response Grants can be found on the Foundation’s website. 

Washington County Community Foundation has updated their website with many resources for the COVID-19 crisis.
