Overview:

United Way of Marion and Taylor Counties COVID-19 Response & Recovery fund will provide flexible resources to non-profit organizations in our region working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by Coronavirus and the economic consequences of this outbreak.

  • Food distribution to students affected by school closures and other vulnerable populations that are isolated or lack access.
  • Availability of shelter beds for people experiencing homelessness who do not have the resources needed to stay safe.
  • Operational funding gaps for health and human service agencies.
