United Way of Greater Greensboro is pleased to announce it has directed $64,000 from GSO Tornado Relief donations to the Greensboro Housing Coalition for immediate housing stability and rehousing of households impacted by the April 15, 2018 tornado in Greensboro, NC.
“Housing is the most important human need we can give our neighbors. The outpouring of love and compassion in the community is great and we want to say thank you to everyone for being heroes. We are stronger together,” says Michelle Gethers-Clark, President and CEO, United Way of Greater Greensboro.
The Greensboro Housing Coalition’s main relief focus at this time is to assist households whose homes were completely destroyed or experienced major damage, as assessed by Guilford County Emergency Management Services.
As GSO Tornado Relief donations continue to be collected and processed, United Way will issue weekly checks as identified and directed by the City and Guilford County Disaster Response committee.
The committee has determined future United Way GSO Tornado Relief distributions will be directed based on need to a combination of housing, getting students back in school, getting adults back to work, and basic needs.
