The United Way of Oxford-Lafayette County (UWOLC) has established a COVID-19 fund to help provide short-term relief to individuals and families living in Lafayette County who have been affected by a loss of wages due to COVID-19. The contributions received through the UWOLC's COVID-19 fund will be granted to a nonprofit organization (or potentially nonprofit organizations) that will provide direct assistance to those impacted on a case-by-case basis. Information regarding the organization(s) receiving grant funds will be released at a later date.
While the UWOLC is not a direct service provider, the organization helps support several local nonprofit organizations that provide such assistance to Lafayette County residents. The fund will serve to enhance the collective resources that are available to individuals and families in need.
