“I felt my stomach slowly sinking.” Here’s one Winnipegger’s experience with the Living on the Edge poverty simulation.
We are a proud partner in administering the COVID-19 Emergency Community Support Fund, alongside United Way Centraide Canada, Community Foundations of Canada, The Canadian Red Cross, and the Government of Canada.
When COVID-19 hit our city, community-serving agencies were thrust into emergency mode. Despite all the hard work of staff and volunteers, no matter how many hours they devoted to helping Winnipeggers, this new reality of life in a pandemic was overwhelming.
Emergency funds are supporting isolated and vulnerable older adults with food hampers, prepared meals, mental health supports, tax filing and more.
With federal funding, United Way Winnipeg is partnering with the City of Winnipeg 311 Call Centre, A&O Support Services for Older Adults, CAA, The Winnipeg Foundation and community organizations serving older adults to utilize 311.
We’re all in this together! Here’s a helpful list of resources and links to help Winnipeggers through the COVID-19 pandemic.
United Way Winnipeg is committed to helping Winnipeg’s seniors through this unprecedented time.
United Way Winnipeg has compiled this resource for the social sector as well as the broader Winnipeg community as the COVID-19 situation unfolds.
Donations to the COVID-19 Community Response Fund will help community social service agencies respond to the needs of vulnerable populations.
When it came time to decide how to invest in our community, Lynn & Wally MacMartin knew they wanted to leave a legacy with their name on it.
