The United Way of Southeast Arkansas has received a $25,000 donation from Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield and the Blue and You Foundation.

In a press release issued Monday the United Way of Southeast Arkansas  said they “Want to express how grateful they are to receive a generous donation of $25,000.00 from the wonderful people of The Arkansas Blue & You Foundation. Each UnitedWay of Southeast Arkansas partner agency that provides feeding programs have been thrilled to receive a check for $5,000.00. ”

The agencies receiving the allocations of funds are CASA Women’s Shelter of Pine Bluff, Ar, Salvation Army of Pine Bluff, Ar, Neighbor to Neighbor of Pine Bluff, Ar, Delta Network Food Bank of Pine Bluff, Ar, and Area Agency on Aging of Southeast Arkansas.

After being presented with their check each agency noted the many people that they can continue to help during our present COVID-19 situation. It takes leadership and a real passion for the welfare of people, and that is
something Arkansas BlueCross BlueShield and Blue & You Foundation have in abundance.

Kathy Tynes of Area Agency on Aging said she “wished she could give us all a big hug”. Even though social distancing keeps all of us from expressing our thanks in tender gestures the enthusiasm of gratitude is not diminished. People loving local and helping each other is what it is all about!
