Let’s come together to create a wave of generosity! Tuesday, May 5th
is a global day of giving and unity taking place today as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
As the nation and our communities adjust daily, even hourly, to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) pandemic, United Way of Southeast Alaska, like many others in Southeast Alaska, has sprung into action to support our 34 partner agencies and other community partners.
While our nurses, doctors, and other health care professionals combat COVID-19 on the front lines, United Way is working with our non-profit partners to directly help individuals and families affected by the economic consequences of the pandemic while also supporting 211, the go-to information resource in times of crisis. In short, United Way of Southeast Alaska is committed to standing with our communities and supporting those impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
We know that there are lots of places to give your money to today, and we also know that all of our community members are not in a place to give right now. But when you give to United Way of Southeast Alaska, you not only give to us, you give to 34 partner agencies, to get things done like:
- Distrubting food to students affected by school closures and other vulnerable populations who are isolated or lack access.
- Increasing availability of shelter beds for people experiencing homelessness who do not have the resources needed to stay safe.
- Helping close Operational funding gaps for health and human service agencies.
- Helping to supplement loss of income and access to services for vulnerable populations.
With your help, United Way and our partners will be best able to address the needs of our neighbors most affected by the economic consequences of the pandemic, such as individuals without access to sick days, service industry workers placed on unpaid furlough that threatens housing stability, or families left without quality childcare due to school or facility closure.
Together, as Alaskans, we will overcome this pandemic by making sure the most vulnerable among us are protected.
UNITED WE WIN.
