On February 11, 2021 the national 211 resource will celebrate 211 Day to celebrate this incredible resource and those who make it possible.
The date 2/11 is an homage to the three-digit number anyone in need can dial in order to connect to a call center by phone, text or web search to obtain local resources across the U.S.
PA 211 East, United Way of Lancaster County’s signature program covers seven counties throughout Pennsylvania: Berks, Carbon, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Northampton and Schuylkill. The 12 employees work day-in and day-out to assist countless residents year-round.
You can learn more about PA 211 East and their services HERE.
This year all United Way of Lancaster County donations collected on 211 Day will go directly to PA 211 East. This will translate into more community members getting the assistance they need.
Join us in supporting this vital resource on 211 Day by visiting one of the participating locations who will be collecting donations and handing out 211 stickers, magnets, pens and more!
