CORRECTED March 20, 2020: United Way Reinstates Disaster Relief Fund
(San Marcos, Texas) – United Way of Hays and Caldwell Counties has reinstated our disaster relief fund to assist those affected by the COVID-19 virus, particularly economically, in Hays and Caldwell counties. We are working with our partners to distribute these funds directly to those in need throughout Hays and Caldwell Counties in the coming days, weeks and months. There is not currently a process for the public to apply for these funds. We ask that members of the public be patient as we raise the critical dollars to assist as many of our community members as we can.
