COVID-19 Community Response Fund
United Way Yukon is working with other non-profits and local governments to provide help to Yukoners impacted by the measures taken to combat the spread of COVID-19.
We all need to pull together to meet this challenge.
United Way Yukon is administering two funds on behalf of the Government of Canada that support organizations working directly with vulnerable people affected by the pandemic: Vulnerable Seniors Response Fund and Emergency Community Support Fund.
Local funds to local people
We also have started a COVID-19 Community Response Fund to help individuals meet their urgent small needs, using $25 Loblaws gift cards. These allow an individual who is struggling financially to purchase what they need most at the time – personal care products, food, or even clothing – respecting their right to choose their priorities.
The cards are distributed by community partners, such as the Yukon University Foundation. Our partners are the front-line experts at finding and helping people in need.
Help show your Local Love in this Global Crisis. Make a donation to our COVID-19 Community Response Fund. All money donated to this fund will be immediately directed to our COVID-19 initiatives. Every $25 donation buys another gift card!
