United Way Waterloo Region Communities creates COVID-19 Community Response Fund

In response to the unprecedented coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), United Way Waterloo Region Communities has created the COVID-19 Community Response Fund. This fund will support the work of frontline organizations who are at the forefront of this issue and collectively striving to ensure our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy.

“This is a difficult time for everyone and we know those who are already marginalized in our community will be disproportionately impacted. We want every citizen in Waterloo Region and the organizations doing crucial work on the ground to know that we’re here to support them,” said Joan Fisk, CEO of United Way Waterloo Region Communities.

Please consider donating to this special campaignThe funds collected will stay here in Waterloo Region and go directly to the organizations that require more support during this time. United Way is working directly with community leaders and agencies to ensure we are providing help where needed.

For more information about the COVID-19 Community Response Fund or United Way Waterloo Region Communities, you can contact 519-888-6100 or email info@uwaywrc.ca.
