The Power of Community

Body: 

 

We can be United even when we're apart. Here's how.

 

Right now it’s easy to feel isolated. But even though we are apart, we are United. We are still a community. 

We are a community that is full of hand-raisers and doers. One full of people who are strong, compassionate, generous and full of resolve. We know if we come together, we’ll get through this and be stronger on the other side.

We know, because we’ve seen the power of community. The power of this community. 

The Power of Community

United Way of Hays and Caldwell Counties has served our community for 37 years. During that time, we have seen this community face and survive many crises. We have made it through natural disasters, episodes of violence, financial downturns and other hardships by working together, supporting each other and creating innovative solutions to old problems.

During the last two months, this power of community has been on full display as our friends and neighbors respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. Businesses, nonprofit partners and individuals have all answered the call for help. Whether it was Wells Fargo donating $10,000 to our disaster relief fund, local churches matching gifts to the Hays County Food Bank or local restaurants donating meals to families in need, we have seen how acts of kindness big and small create change.

But though there is much to celebrate, many more people still need help. So we are asking generous people in the community like you to do what you always do – come together and give.

A Worldwide Day of Giving and Unity

To add power to this moment, we are asking you to give on May 5 during #GivingTuesdayNow, a special worldwide event. On this first Tuesday of May, thousands of people and organizations around the world will be coming together in acts of unity and giving as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

What You Can Do

If you are looking for a way to give back and safely connect to your community again, we ask you to donate during #GivingTuesdayNow. 

When you give to the Hays and Caldwell Counties Disaster Relief Fund on or before May 5, your full donation will be directed to neighbors who have been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Donate today and help show the power of community.
