DISBURSED INTO CK THROUGH THE COVID-19 RELIEF FUND!
Helping Chatham-Kent through the COVID-19 Relief Fund
In response to the pandemic, find out how United Way of Chatham Kent is putting your dollars to work.
The COVID-19 Relief Fund is focusing on helping those organizations that have been most immediately impacted by the pandemic, and who support the most vulnerable populations in Chatham-Kent. Local COVID-19 relief has been funded in part by donations made through ckgives.ca, funded in part by the Ontario Student Nutrition Program, funded in part by the Government of Canada, and funded in part by the Chatham-Kent Community Foundation.
IN MARCH 2020, THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION DECLARED THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) A PANDEMIC
Since then, public health, several municipal departments, social services agencies, community groups, and United Way of Chatham-Kent have come together to ensure we are able to continue to support those most in need in our community. Grassroots groups have formed. Neighbours are helping neighbours. Volunteers are stepping up.
Everyone has an important role to play.
