Helping Those Impacted by COVID-19 in the Mohawk Valley
In March 2020, the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties and United Way of the Mohawk Valley joined together to create a single community-wide fund to support organizations responding to human services needs in Herkimer and Oneida counties resulting from the impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic. With the help of individual donors, companies, and other funders, the response fund raised a total of $1.2M, which was redistributed back into the community, supporting more than 60 nonprofits. Grants from the fund assisted with various needs including, food distribution, technology, healthcare, program outreach, personal protective equipment, cleaning supplies, and more.
Thank you to all the supporters that made this possible and to the local nonprofits ensuring that needs in the community continue to be met.
