Partner Spotlight: Help for Furloughed Workers
United Way and other nonprofits experienced an uptick in requests for assistance from those impacted by the government shutdown. Recognizing the emerging need, the UWFK Board of Directors quickly voted to provide $10,000 to assist with emergency, short-term financial assistance through two of our partner agencies. 

UWFK funding was earmarked for unpaid federal employees in Monroe County, and provided gift cards for basic needs as well as emergency financial assistance through The Florida Keys Outreach Coalition (Upper and Lower Keys) and KAIR Keys Area Interdenominational Resources (Middle Keys).

UWFK was honored to help serve those who serve our country.
Supporter Spotlight: AT&T
The United Way of the Florida Keys wants to recognize our global partner AT&T for helping us meet the needs within our own local community.  Thank you for your support, AT&T and your employees!
