This year has been a challenging one for families, organizations and businesses.
When the Coronavirus outbreak began in March, the safety of the community became a primary focus.
As a result, in-person learning switched to virtual methods, many began working from home, and many events and programs were canceled.
Businesses and organizations needed to adjust in order to meet the needs of those they serve.
Even though the Coronavirus brought many unexpected changes, What’s Up Prince William (WUPW.news) has continued to support non-profits across the county.
In 2020, we provided more than $46,000 worth of coverage for at least 20 non-profits, including Action in Community Through Service (ACTS) and the Prince William County/Manassas Boys & Girls Clubs.
For ACTS, we created videos and articles about the services it offers, such as the 24/7 helpline and Hunger Prevention Center.
WUPW.news also promoted the Hylton Boys & Girls Club, which opened as a daycare to essential workers, and safety precautions taken by staff members.
Other non-profits we supported are:
- Dale City Civic Association (DCCA)
- Leadership Prince William
- National Museum of Americans in Wartime
- Prince William Humane Society
- The Arc of Greater Prince William
- And 16 others
“We are grateful to be able to continue to talk about non-profits and the great ways they are serving the community,” WUPW.news Editor Erin Flynn said. “This year, it has been even more necessary to promote them.”
