In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United Way of St. Clair County’s (UWSCC) Board of Directors has made additional funds available through the organization’s long-standing Emergency Services Fund.
The fund will be used for a multitude of efforts to help with recovery, including food, housing, utilities assistance, operational funding gaps for health and human service agencies and access to services for vulnerable populations.
During this time of great concern, the local United Way attests it seen businesses, organizations, and residents join together and stand united for the benefit of all. This has partly been seen in the form of financial donations to UWSCC’s Emergency Services Fund. The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, Meijer, and The Stebbins Family have already contributed significantly to the fund.
In accordance with Governor Whitmer’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order, the United Way’s office will be closed at least through April 13. As always, 211 is a three-digit phone call available 24/7 to connect residents with information and referrals to help them through the COVID-19 pandemic.
