AT&T Supports Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties‘ COVID-19 Relief Efforts

Contribution from AT&T will provide rental assistance to Loudoun families in need.

The Visit Loudoun Foundation’s Tourism and Hospitality Relief Fund (THRF) received a $5,000 contribution from AT&T to support the COVID-19 Emergency Fund and Helpline, which provides rental assistance to Loudoun families in need.

Loudoun residents in need of rental assistance can call the COVID-19 Emergency Fund and Helpline at (703) 669-5040.  Trained staff from Catholic Charities and Loudoun Cares complete an intake process and assess the needs of each caller, and are able to accommodate foreign language requests through bilingual staff and volunteers as well as interpreter services.  As of May 18, more than 64 households have been provided rental assistance, and almost 40% of callers receiving support meet federal poverty guidelines. 

The Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties set up the Visit Loudoun Foundation’s THRF. “The funds from the Community Emergency Relief Fund and the Tourism and Hospitality Relief Fund are a huge help to struggling families calling the Helpline,” said Valerie Pisierra, executive director of Loudoun Cares.
