United Way of Carlisle & Cumberland County has determined that we can be most helpful in addressing our community’s emerging needs by creating the Carlisle Area Emergency Response Fund.
Your COVID-19 emergency response gift will be used locally to meet the emerging and critical needs in our community by non-profit organizations. Hosted by United Way in partnership with corporate, municipal, and non-profit entities and individual donors like you, this fund will allow us to rapidly deploy resources to community-based organizations that are offering emergency relief to families and individuals in need, right here in Cumberland County.
The service area will include: Boiling Springs (17007), Carlisle & Carlisle Barracks (17013), Carlisle & West Pennsboro (17015), Mount Holly Springs (17065), New Kingstown (17072), Newville (17241) and Plainfield (17081).
Community leaders will determine the allocation of funds to ensure every dollar is spent appropriately. Funds will be allocated to non-profit organizations on a rolling basis and not awarded directly to individuals.
