DONATE TO OUR COVID-19 COMMUNITY RESPONSE FUND/FEEDING OUR HEROES FUND

United Way of South Central Nebraska and Hastings Community Foundation have announced the creation of a fund to aid organizations serving those impacted by the COVID-19 virus. Grant requests will be assessed based on their ability to serve impacted populations or limiting the spread and impact of the virus.

United Way of South Central Nebraska is partnering with Hastings Community Foundation in efforts to help those that are helping others. We have also started a special fund, Feeding Our Heroes! This fund will be designated to buys meals for our local heroes: EMT, Firefighters, Police Officers, hospital staff, etc.
