As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the globe and in the U.S., I want to let you know what United Way Blackhawk Region is doing to respond to this public health emergency.
First and foremost, our number one priority is the safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers, agency partners and the communities in which we live and work - especially the families we fight for every day.
Our team is assessing the situation daily, remaining vigilant, and following all recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
United Way’s 211 information and referral service is preparing for increased call volume due to the pandemic. If you are in need of services, dial 211 or text your zip code to 898-211 to be connected to someone who can help. In anticipation of increased call volume, you can also access resources by visiting the 211 website
. Please be assured that while we remain focused on the health and safety of our staff and those around us, we also are focused on providing continued service to the community.
Funded Program Partners: Please keep us and 211 informed of any program changes or challenges that may result from this situation. Our team is here to help.
Donors and Corporate Partners: We appreciate your continued investment in United Way's work to drive strategic impact in the health, education, and financial stability of everyone in our community. Our neighbors need our support now more than ever.
United Way Committee Volunteers: Your United Way staff liaison will contact you via email regarding any changes to upcoming meetings.
As we navigate this time of uncertainty together, I want to reaffirm how important it is to LIVE UNITED. We appreciate your patience and flexibility in this developing situation. Thanks for your care in helping us all stay well.
