United Way of Greater Greensboro has partnered with several local organizations to provide a coordinated response to children and families impacted by COVID-19. The Greensboro Virus Relief Fund provides grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofit agencies to address six priority areas: 

Food insecurities, such as homebound seniors and families with children

Education interruptions, such as children in early Head-Start through postsecondary

Employment reductions, such as reduced hours, layoffs and furlough

Housing vulnerabilities, such as rental assistance and shelters for homeless

Medical access, such as transportation or those in need of homebound supports

Business disruption, such as resources for small business community


Nearly $800,000 has been raised for the fund so far. Donations may be made online or by texting "Virus" to 40403.
