United Way of Central Minnesota

A nonprofit organization

$6,305 Raised by 12 Donors

100% complete

$5,000 Goal

At the beginning of 2020, none of us were prepared for what we would confront. And no one knew how many in our community would need our help. Faced with a once-in-a-generation challenge, Central Minnesota stepped up. United Way staff, donors, volunteers, and our entire community came together in an unprecedented way. We helped our neighbors who were most impacted by the global pandemic and economic downturn get the relief and support they needed in the following ways:

 

  • $17,500 to support victims of domestic violence and sexual assault by providing technology for telehealth support groups
  • $22,000 to meet dramatically increased demand for home-delivered meals to isolated seniors in our community
  • $30,000 to support childcare for Tier 1 emergency & health care workers and Tier 2 workers during school closures.
  • $11,000 to help families navigate uncharted and challenging distance learning frontiers online
  • $5,000 to support homeless youth in our school districts who are now unwelcome on couches and in shared spaces

 

But there is so much more to do. Many in our community still struggle with unemployment, food insecurity, housing, and health challenges. They don’t know where their next meal is coming from, or how they will pay the rent or the bills. Even more, are teetering on the edge without back-up savings. Kids are struggling with an unconventional school year. Adults are facing mental health challenges like anxiety and depression. 

 

These are our neighbors. And they cannot wait any longer for relief, for support, for equality, for the opportunity to live a healthy, thriving life.

 

Let’s not put off until tomorrow the work that we can start today. Respond to the new year with hope, with possibility, with action. Together, we can build a tomorrow that is better than yesterday. For every single one of us.

 

We can't do it alone. Will you Raise Your Hand for your community and help us support those in need?
