COVID-19 Response

The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the way we live our lives.  United Way Yukon is working with our community partners to respond to the ways that the pandemic is affecting us, especially those most in need.

As we organize, grassroots groups are forming. Neighbours are helping neighbours. Volunteers are stepping up. Everyone has an important role to play.
