“Since the opening of this fund, we have received an outpouring of generosity. That has only continued with … gifts from the Dudley Foundation and Walter Alexander Foundation” said Tim Parker, president/CEO of the Community Foundation, in a news release. “In times of need, we feel honored, alongside United Way, to be able to offer hope to our local nonprofits.”
