“We wanted to make
sure residents had a one-stop shop available to them during these trying
times,” said Kim Olesker, president and CEO of United Way of Porter County.
“It’s hard to know where to get information if you’ve never needed it
interested in volunteer opportunities will also find ways to help out their
community here as well.
“We are currently
assessing community need for volunteers,” Olesker said. “Once we have an
idea of what’s needed we can mobilize those willing to assist.”
Information in the
resource guide can be found at unitedwaypc.org/coronavirus-resources and
will be continually updated as new information becomes available.
