MADISONVILLE, Ky (WEHT) The United Way of the Coalfield is once again stepping up to aid the people of Hopkins and Muhlenberg Counties.
The organization will be distributing COVID-19 community health crisis funds in both Hopkins and Muhlenberg counties. Those funds have been granted by Truist Bank, formerly Sun Trust and BB&T prior to their merger, who allocated $2,600, while US Bank Foundation donated $4,400. The United Way has been entrusted with distribution of these funds where the need in our community is greatest.
The $7,000 in funds have been earmarked for food assistance and will be distributed between the local Salvation Army and Hope2All, both current United Way partner agencies, as well as to Breaking Bread and Christian Food Bank.
The United Way of the Coalfield asks that any other businesses, companies, corporations, and individuals who want to assist reach out to so they can continue to provide help to those most in need in our community.
If you would like to donate, please contact Executive Director Don Howerton at 270.821.3170.
