United Way of Southeast Missouri’s #GiveUnitedCarParade

United Way of Southeast Missouri’s #GiveUnitedCarParade took place Tuesday, May 5, 2020, in Cape Girardeau. Elizabeth Shelton, executive director of United Way of Southeast Missouri, said Tuesday was “‘Giving Tuesday Now’ which is being celebrated globally to help the nonprofits that are helping people impacted by COVID-19.” She said Tuesday was chosen for the parade “to give thanks to essential works who have stayed on the job and to volunteers who have also risked their own health to help others.” Shelton said those who are able can give financially to the organization’s COVID-19 fund. She said the organization supports 30 other nonprofits that are helping.
