First Federal Bank will be presenting United Way of North Central Florida (UWNCFL) with a $10,000 check for their Home Sweet Home Initiative.
The Home Sweet Home Initiative was formed to help find solutions to end childhood homelessness. Through partnerships with the school system, homeless service providers and other nonprofit organizations, this comprehensive approach helps families avoid or escape homelessness.
February 11 is also “211 Day,” bringing awareness to United Way’s 211 resource and referral line. 211 is a free and confidential service and first step for those in need in our community to find shelter or rental assistance to prevent the trauma of homelessness among other services provided.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 11 from 11 a.m. to noon
WHERE: United Way of North Central Florida, 6031 NW 1st Place, Gainesville, FL 32607
