In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic.
Leeds & Grenville is a caring community; we’ve shown that together, we are stronger. Through crisis, we take a stand to make sure that no one is left behind and that everyone is taken care of. We rally together for the safety of our families, loved ones, and neighbours. Today, we are calling on you for your compassion, strong sense of community, and urgent support to help individuals affected by COVID-19.
We've started a Local Love in a Global Crisis Relief Fund to help aid frontline agencies.
We know that in our region many people could not, and cannot, afford to adequately prepare for how COVID-19 is affecting their family. Those who already face barriers—things like food insecurity, poverty, and social isolation—need even more help during this time. As you protect your family and those closest to you to keep them healthy, we urge you to think of those who may need assistance in the community.
United Way is committed to continuing to support agencies and individuals and their needs and the following key areas have been identified, although this may continue to grow and change as needs arise.
Donate now to help vulnerable residents of Leeds & Grenville access the supports and services they need during this extraordinary time.
Together, we can flatten the curve, ensuring the health, safety, and well-being of our communities and its most vulnerable citizens.
