Local Love in a Global Crisis initiative launched today

United Way Leeds & Grenville announced today that they have launched Local Love in a Global Crisis initiative to support those who are hardest hit during the COVID-19 pandemic.

United Way Leeds & Grenville is asking the community to help support the most vulnerable, as we coordinate with community and social service supports in response to the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) across our region.

We have been reaching out to our community partners, front line agencies, and local health authority to identify needs in our community. Our United Way has identified the following needs, while anticipating they will continue to grow:

• Help for seniors – ensure that while vulnerable people are isolated, they are also supported
• Basic needs – ensure people have access to life’s essentials, such as food
• Capacity for community services – ensure that community partners can continue to do their vital local work
• Mental health support – enable crisis lines and system navigation services
• Support for volunteers – there are amazing people rallying to support others – they need our help too

United Way has launched this initiative to help with coordination efforts and raise funds for those most vulnerable allowing for people to make a donation to support those most in need. Visit the website at https://uwlg.org/covid19.php

“We will work with key partners including health authorities, community organizations, and front-line agencies, by investing to support the communities we serve in this time of great need,” said Trish Buote, Executive Director, United Way. “It is our role to aid in the ongoing support of our community, and to ensure that vulnerable populations are not left behind.”
