Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

The Burke County United Way office currently remains open with some staff in office and some working remotely. We encourage persons wanting to stop by the office to call first to ensure someone is there to receive them.

Please view our social distancing policies here.

We maintain contact with state emergency management to stay updated on COVID-19, and encourage the use of 2-1-1 to call for assistance and resources related to COVID-19. If citizens would like to receive general developments, they should sign up for 211’s text alerts by texting COVIDNC to 898211.
