Responding to Community Needs Amid COVID-19 Pandemic
For 97 years, United Way of Central Oklahoma has played a key role in responding to community emergency situations. We have enacted disaster relief funds following the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the May 2013 tornadoes and other disasters. In each circumstance, United Way has effectively and efficiently distributed donors’ dollars to serve as many people as possible while maintaining the highest level of accountability.
While the COVID-19 pandemic is unlike any community emergency we’ve encountered, the United Way’s response efforts remain the same—ensuring our Partner Agencies have the resources they need to efficiently serve as many people as possible.
United Way of Central Oklahoma established the COVID-19 Response Fund dedicated to increasing resilience among our most vulnerable individuals and families. This fund supports Partner Agencies of United Way of Central Oklahoma, United Way of Logan County and United Way of Canadian County, helping them to address the needs of those individuals who are experiencing COVID-19 related hardship primarily due to temporary unemployment, lost income or unexpected expenses related and due to COVID-19.
