What We DoCategory: News
We are proud to announce another $50,000 in investment to 23 local community benefit organizations to meet the unfolding COVID-19 crisis in Lancaster County.
Dollars from Lancaster Cares are already at work through Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and LancCo MyHome. Each organization received an $80,000 grant this week to expand their capacity to support growing demands for food security and shelter needs.
The Community Foundation and United Way of Lancaster County have released an application to support emerging needs every week across our community as part of the Lancaster Cares COVID-19 Response Fund. Lancaster Cares will fund community benefit organizations that provide food, housing and emerging critical needs for Lancaster residents.
These are undeniably hard and uncertain times. But Lancaster County is uniquely positioned to weather this storm; our community is built for the long haul. Our rich and diverse culture, our deep-rooted values and our extraordinary generosity will lift us through this challenging moment. We’re in this together.
Support immediate needs for Lancaster families during the COVID-19 crisis.
At the Community Foundation, we're committed to continuing to think local: to focus on tangible solutions and emboldening the most important resource we have in Lancaster County: our people. Here are some ways that our team is working to both keep safety as our top priority while also continuing to push forward with our goal of emboldening extraordinary community.
