United Way of Eddy County receives $20,000 from Chevron for Hardship Fund
It wasn’t just love at first sight. Every passing day, the United Way of Eddy County is falling more in love with its community. And that love is especially being felt this Valentine’s Day.
On Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2023, the United Way announced a $20,000 donation from Chevron to the organization’s Hardship Fund, which works to provide struggling local families with immediate needs.
Chevron helped the United Way establish the Hardship Fund during the COVID-19 pandemic to provide emergency food, housing and other supports to vulnerable residents. With support from generous donors, the Hardship Fund continues to spread the love in the community, providing neighbors with swift access to resources and aid, such as help with utility bills, food pantries and distributions, veteran services, mental health support, clothing, prescription medications and housing support.
Generous donations from community partners to the Hardship Fund are having a direct and meaningful impact on community members.
