United Way is committed to supporting Keys residents already affected by COVID-19 related decreases in tourism and restrictions on businesses which impact their livelihood.
UWFK is leading efforts to respond to this need, with
$20,000 disbursed last week
to immediately expand capacity of our local food pantries and provide short-term emergency financial assistance for critical needs.
We are carefully planning for a long-term response to the pandemic’s effects in Monroe County, with u
p to $80,000 more earmarked accordingly. This funding will be allocated by United Way of Collier and the Keys after our merger on April 1. Together, we are committed to work with our partner donors, businesses, and agencies to help meet unmet needs as they arise.
