SAVANNAH, GA. – United Way of the Coastal Empire is proud to celebrate 211 Day, which is recognized by United Way organizations across the country on February 11th every year.
This year, United Way commemorated the special day with a tour across the area. United Way 211 information and referral specialists met with community leaders, including judges, law enforcement, city officials, and educators, to raise awareness about 211 and its vital services.
“Collaboration with our community partners is essential to fulfilling our mission of improving lives throughout our four-county service area,” says Ariane Wallace, Director of 211, United Way of the Coastal Empire. “211 Day gives us another opportunity to connect with our partners and to ensure our community is aware of the available resources.”
211 is a free, confidential information and referral service provided by United Way of the Coastal Empire to ensure that every person in our four-county service area, including Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty counties, has access to the best resources available. This past year, 211 information and referral specialists answered 13,000 calls for assistance.
In addition to promoting awareness of this valuable community service, 211 Day is also about expressing gratitude to the United Way Direct Services 211 team, which does this important work daily.
United Way’s 211 team maintains a database of information and referral partners that provide programs or services to support the needs of residents in our community. The team also manages direct service-related funds that United Way works to secure from generous donors, grants, or government partnerships. United Way is only able to provide financial assistance based on eligibility and available resources, which change often.
