The Salvation Army, the Angelina County Senior Citizens Center, and the Hope Center were among the first organizations to receive funding.

More funds have been earmarked specifically for use to assist with issues arising from the pandemic.

“We have no idea what will be occurring in our community in the coming months,” said Chris Caraway, Angelina County United Way president, in a news release. “What will be the ramifications of this virus on us in three months or in six months?

“Having United Way funds readily available to community organizations for the future further ensures we properly care for one another in these unprecedented times,” Caraway said.
