During times of uncertainty and crisis, people come together to support one another. COVID-19 is a new test of our collective strength. As millions are on lockdown and more businesses are closing, unemployment is spiking. Feeding the kids, making the rent and keeping the lights on is tougher for many than ever before. 211, the go-to information resource in the U.S., is fielding 200-400% more calls than normal, mostly for food, financial assistance and housing.
United Ways of the Pacific Northwest (UWPNW) is committed to standing with our communities and supporting those impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Find information about what your local United Ways are doing, the resources they're providing to your community and how to contribute to the COVID-19 Response Fund closest to you by clicking on your local area in the map below.
