The United Way of Ellis County announces the opening of the 2021 CARE Council application process. Any 501(c)(3) that provides services in Ellis County is eligible to apply. The services must meet one of the three criteria of education, health, and financial stability.

There will be a Zoom meeting for those interested in applying for funding on Wednesday, Sept. 23 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. to learn about the online application process.
