In response to the ongoing needs created by the pandemic, United Way of Racine County (UWRC) has launched new opportunities for local nonprofits to request support and for community members to get involved. Through its UWRC COVID Relief project, local nonprofits can apply for funds, request single-use face masks and request supplies. Community members are invited to donate to the COVID Relief Fund, donate to the supply drive and volunteer to construct masks.
These efforts are the second phase of pandemic response efforts led by United Way of Racine County. Learn more about the first phase, Community Cares.
Apply for Funding
The United Way of Racine County (UWRC) COVID Relief Fund was established to meet the unexpected and immediate needs of our community related to the pandemic. In particular, the UWRC COVID Relief Fund will focus on the community’s areas of greatest need and inequities.
