REDDING, Calif. - Helping the helpers. The United Way of Northern California is stepping up to help organizations helping our most vulnerable through the coronavirus crisis.

The organization is granting much-needed cash to non-profits that need it to keep helping. The money will go towards non-profits helping seniors citizens, people who are unemployed or are facing disabilities just to name a few.

United Way of Northern California President and CEO Larry Olmstead says several organizations have already applied for grant funding.

“They're working directly with people they can identify people who are in immediate need and we can get those resources quickly to those individuals,” said Olmstead.

Non-profits can receive as much as $1000 to 10,000 dollars.

The United Way will start announcing which groups are getting the first set of grant money starting next week.

The fog tucked us in last night, leaving for some surreal driving conditions on the roads. We see the potential for a repeat situation this evening for the valley.
