As the coronavirus continues to hit our community hard and we all deal with a lot of uncertainty, United Way of Broward County is very concerned about families and individuals who struggle every day to make ends meet.
To provide critical assistance to our neighbors in need, United Way of Broward County has launched a COVID-19 Campaign to raise funds for two key areas:
- Delivery of pre-packed meals to eligible shut-in elderly
- Supplementing efforts by Broward County Public Schools to feed local students on free/reduced lunch (66% of Broward County students) by launching a walk-up/drive-thru distribution sites for pre-packed meals and food
- Doubling deliveries to the food banks we serve through our program, Project Lifeline
Emergency Financial Assistance
- Utility assistance
- Rental/mortgage assistance
- Food assistance
- Household supplies
$250 will help 1 household with emergency financial needs
$100 will send fresh, nutritious food to 2 local food pantries
$50 will buy 5 days of meals (2 meals per day) for 1 elderly Broward resident
$25 will buy 4 meals and snacks for 1 hungry Broward student
The COVID-19 Campaign goes above and beyond support of United Way of Broward County’s annual campaign, and 100% of all donations to the COVID-19 Campaign will be used to support those affected by the coronavirus.
On behalf of a grateful community, we thank these organizations for generously providing much-needed funds to support emerging needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
