The grant is part of the financial services company’s Truist Cares initiative, a $25 million philanthropic pledge announced in March to support basic needs, medical supplies and financial hardship relief due to COVID-19.
“We are so appreciative of Truist’s generosity during this extremely difficult time,” said UWNCFL President & CEO Mona Gil de Gibaja. “These much-needed donations will help community members pay for basic necessities such as rent, utilities, food and toiletries. These funds will also help to pay for our essential 2-1-1 resource referral helpline.”
“We are happy to support United Way of North Central Florida in their mission to create real social change that leads to better lives and healthier communities,” said Scott Keith, North Florida regional president. “At Truist, we remain focused on helping struggling members of our communities fulfill basic needs.”
