Hello Friend,

As California continues to grapple with the impact of COVID-19, we’re seeing a surge in requests in Orange County for help with housing, food, and utilities. The public health crisis is causing immediate concerns for all, but the effects of California’s Stay at Home order has resulted in many members of our community losing their jobs or having their work hours severely reduced.

While the Federal Government has approved a stimulus package, this assistance will take some time to arrive in the hands of our neighbors in need. Unfortunately, these vulnerable families need our help now.

So many of you have already donated to our Pandemic Relief Fund – we thank you for your generosity! This fund is crucial to helping our Orange County families in need, so we ask that you please share the information about the fund with your network, friends, and families: UnitedWayOC.org/PandemicFund.

Donate to the Pandemic Relief Fund
If you are an individual or family in need of assistance or support, please dial 2-1-1 to be connected with local health and human services resources.

Stay healthy and safe.

Susan B. Parks
President & CEO
