Special Report

Erath County United Way has launched a fund to help residents cope with the COVID-19 crisis.


ECUW will match donations up to $25,000. The fund will allow the ECUW Community Impact Committee to rapidly deploy needed resources that offer crucial support such as utility assistance, food vulnerability, housing assistance and other needs.


One hundred percent of the money raised will go to individuals and families that have been directly impacted by unemployment, reduced work hours or furlough due to COVID-19.


“We understand that COVID-19 has disrupted lives in our community. As an organization whose entire mission is to mobilize community resources to help people improve their lives, we feel it is our duty to work proactively to raise funds for those in this emergency situation,” said ECUW board president Staci King.


You can make a gift now to the ECUW COVID-19 Community Response Fund by clicking “donate” on www.erathcountyuw.org.


An account has also been set up at Citizens National Bank of Texas, 2207 West Washington Street, or checks can be mailed to Erath County United Way at 150 North Harbin Drive, Suite #309.


Please note "COVID19 Response" in the memo line.
