United Way Emergency Fund (COVID-19 Recovery)

About This Fund

Our purpose is to be there for those who need us most, so United Way of the Virginia Peninsula launched the Emergency Fund to assist with the evolving needs of our community during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

When a crisis like this occurs, our hardest hit neighbors are those already struggling to make ends meet – we call them ALICE – Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. By donating, you are helping ALICE. ALICE includes:

Hourly workers with no benefits, whose financial stability can be severely impacted by one crisis – like a missed paycheck.
Low income families with children rely on getting their meals at schools that have now been closed
People whose hours have been cut due to temporary closures
People experiencing homelessness who do not have the resources to stay safe

About The Host Organization

Our mission as the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula is to improve the quality of life for people in our community by helping them live their best possible lives. United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community.
