Message from United Way of Clallam County
As an organization dedicated to the well-being of our community, United Way is closely watching the developments surrounding the spread of COVID-19. We are working with our many community partners and have established a fund, the Clallam COVID-19 Response Fund, to help minimize the impact of the outbreak. $100,000 has been added to this fund already and with your help, we will use 100% of your donations to support non-profits who are focused on health and human service needs in our community.
United Way of Clallam County is well positioned for this sort of rapid response, with volunteer-led groups focused on identifying needs year-round, coupled with staff expertise, we will be able to work with direct-service providers and get the dollars where they’re needed most. Depending on need, the Clallam COVID-19 Response Fund will support non-profits in a variety of ways including but not limited to, scholarships for childcare, food for food banks and other places providing free meals, and support for keeping people employed at non-profits that are providing direct services.
Our community is stronger when it is unified, and it is going to take all of us to mitigate the impacts and recover as a community. Your donation, of any amount, makes a difference and is vitally important because one gift to United Way can touch the lives of thousands of individuals and families.
Please click here donate to the The Clallam COVID-19 Fund today.
Qualified health and human service non-profits can apply for funding here.
