As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to develop, United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County’s local nonprofit partners are experiencing increased demand for emergency food, medical equipment, cleaning supplies, and staff time.

In response, we have created a COVID-19 Urgent Needs Fund to quickly respond to our partners’ ongoing needs.

Help us respond to urgent needs today. Donate by following this link:

A special thank you to GE Healthcare, who made a significant donation, and to everyone who has already given.

United Way has already made urgent grants to several area nonprofit organizations through this Urgent Needs Fund and previous donors’ gifts to the Community Fund.

Our focus has been on those agencies still operating services--shelters, food pantries, and clinics. To that end, we have purchased and distributed:
  • Non-perishable food items for emergency shelters and homeless outreach programs
  • Funding to expand meal service at local shelters
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Gloves for serving food
  • Medical-grade gloves for clinic staff
  • Hygiene supplies including toilet paper

Additionally, we have moved dollars to help shelters extend their hours. In Waukesha County, for example, Hebron House is staying open 24/7, rather than requiring residents to leave during the day.

Thank you for your partnership and generosity in helping us support our community’s urgent needs.
