United Way of St. Clair County Approves Grant for Disinfecting Supplies

United Way of St. Clair County (UWSCC) announces the granting of funds for St. Clair County Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) through their Emergency Services Fund ~ COVID-19 Relief.  The current health climate has called for extra care in keeping our surroundings sanitary.  RESA has recognized that the local childcare providers with whom they are connected are struggling to secure the necessary and appropriate cleaning and sanitizing supplies for their centers and homes.  The pandemic has created a shortage of these products at local stores.  UWSCC appreciates RESA’s commitment to the community and well-being of others.  Through UWSCC’s grant, in collaboration with Community Foundation of St. Clair County, and with RESA’s help, 10 childcare providers will receive the supplies they need to safely care for the children.  Visit sccresa.org to learn more about RESA.
