PANDEMIC CHANGES
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we created United We Help Fall River; a Collaboration of United Neighbors and United Way of Greater Fall River. Our usual coalition meetings have been consolidated into four community collaborative meetings via Zoom. Our hope is to return to meeting by individual coalition when we are back to face to face meetings. Below are the times of the meetings:
