United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona is joining with our nonprofit partners, local foundations, businesses, media and educational organizations to launch United for Southern Arizona COVID-19 Fund to help those who need it most survive during this crisis.
Never has the need been greater for the most vulnerable people in our community. The children, families, and older people who are laid-off, unemployed, low-income, homeless, underinsured, and struggling to make ends meet are now facing even more hardship. More than 150,000 families and individuals in southern Arizona are challenged by work and school closures, wage disruptions and restricted access to basic needs.
Your gift to this fund, will quickly support a child, family, or older person with what is essential right now. With our non-profit partners, United Way will deliver emergency services and resources for individuals and families. Assistance and support will include:
- Food access and baby formula
- Diapers and essential health supplies
- Rental assistance
- Utility shortfalls
- Child care
- Other critical services and resources to stabilize families
This fund will be flexible to meet the emerging needs of people in this fast-changing environment. Together, we can help each other and our community emerge stronger than ever.
Your support is needed now, please consider donating today.
