Seven community frontline service providers helping the most vulnerable members of the population benefited from $106,000 in funding through the COVID-19 Community Response Fund.
THUNDER BAY – Frontline service providers that assist some of the most vulnerable members of the community are receiving a helping hand from the COVID-19 Community Response Fund.
The United Way of Thunder Bay and the Thunder Bay Community Foundation are donating $106,306 to seven local frontline service providers.
“The last two weeks have been overwhelming for the entire community,” said Albert Brulé, Chief Executive Officer of United Way of Thunder Bay.
“We all know someone out of a job, working the frontlines, or in need. In the midst of all of this, we must continue to remember the local organizations and agencies who are a lifeline to thousands of people in Thunder Bay. These vital service providers are doing what they can despite the shortages and are taking a risk to help those who are struggling.”
