The UWGK COVID-19 Relief Fund will be used to support community organizations that are working to meet the needs of individuals affected by COVID-19 in the Greater Kingsport area.
For both immediate and longer term response, these funds will be focused in response to vulnerable populations, including children, families, individuals experiencing homelessness, the elderly and ALICE. (ALICE is an acronym coined by United Way that represents all who are Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. This demographic is made of men, women, and families who work hard and earn more than the official Federal Poverty Level, but less than the basic cost of living).
