Nonprofits still find ways to serve despite financial hardship
June 6, 2020
Candy Crecink, the executive director of the United Way of North Central Mississippi, saw something astounding when volunteers collected donations for the branch's May Day food drive on May 1, held in the name of COVID-19 relief.
In one neighborhood, all 45 homeowners put something on their porch to donate, resulting in more than 500 food items to be collected from that area alone.
"Probably some of these neighbors didn't even know each other, but look what this has been: a reacquaintance of your fellow neighbor," Crecink said.
