Support the Rapid Response Fund
Albemarle Area United Way Rapid Response Fund is now accepting donations to support Pasquotank, Camden, Currituck, Dare, Perquimans, Chowan, Bertie, Hertford & Gates County residents needing access to critical resources including food, hygiene, childcare, and housing assistance during times of area-wide crisis, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Albemarle Area United Way is committed to the safety and health of our entire NENC community. We recognize the importance of continuing to serve those most vulnerable in the wake of the global pandemic of COVID-19.
We are encouraging everyone to prioritize personal health and hygiene, to trust the guidance of health experts and local officials, and continue to choose kindness.
The spread of COVID-19 is likely to have a lasting impact in our community, especially affecting those who are medically and economically vulnerable. If you or someone you know is experiencing a financial emergency, have them call 252-333-1009 or email email@example.com to start an application for potential assistance.
If you are in a position to make a financial contribution to meet the needs of our LOCAL community, please make checks payable to Albemarle Area United Way and send to PO Box 293, Elizabeth City, NC 27909 or donate electronically by clicking below.
