United Way of Wayne County to Partner With Wayne County as COVID-19 Community Partner

GOLDSBORO, N.C. --- For 95 years the United Way of Wayne County (UWWC) has worked to help connect resources to the needs of our community. UWWC has been relied upon for support during natural disasters, and most recently, during the COVID-19 pandemic, providing support to multiple organizations including Wayne County Public Schools and UNC Healthcare. Effective immediately, the UWWC will serve as Wayne County’s COVID-19 Helping Hands Community Partner.

This partnership between the Wayne County Health Department and the United Way of Wayne County involves promoting the importance of COVID-19 testing and testing sites, contact tracing and case management for those testing positive with COVID-19 to ensure needs are being met for our most vulnerable population. 

“United Way’s goal is to create strong, vibrant and healthy families because we believe that healthy families are the cornerstone of our community. This partnership empowers us to reach out and help bridge gaps in our community; and we couldn’t imagine a better partner than the County of Wayne.”, said Sherry Archibald, Executive Director. “After meeting with Wayne County’s Health Director, Dr. Brenda Weis, it was clear that she is a visionary with a goal of supporting this community now and beyond, we are excited to be partnering alongside her and her team.” 

“We are proud to take an innovative approach to reach our most vulnerable residents through an established community based agency with a proven track record in Wayne County.”, said Dr. Brenda Weis, Wayne County Health Director. “We look forward to working closely with the entire United Way of Wayne County team as we press forward during this pandemic.”

County Manager Craig Honeycutt added, “Through this agreement, the United Way will work to provide extensive contact tracing, resident engagement, and health education to every person affected by COVID-19. The health and safety of our residents is our top priority, and with amazing community partners, we look forward to safely returning to normal.”

Two organizations with a common goal, to ensure no one feels alone and each individual is provided with the services and resources to get through the challenges of this pandemic.
