United Way California Capital Region (UWCCR) is responding to the Coronavirus COVID-19 health crisis in a variety of ways to ensure the health and safety of our staff and community programs. Below is an update of how we’ve been able to ensure continuity of operations and vital community programs as well as the announcement of our UWCCR COVID-19 Local Relief Fund.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all free tax prep events through April 15 are canceled.
This decision is based on California Governor Gavin Newsom’s announcement this weekend that residents 65 and older isolate themselves, as well as the CDC’s recommendation to cancel any gatherings of 50 or more people. On March 16, the White House took that step further by encouraging Americans to avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people.
Of particular importance to us is to protect those individuals most vulnerable and limit the spread of the virus.
United Way – in partnership with local nonprofits and community centers - will be providing grab-and-go meals for children under 18 years of age at the following sites:
Mack Road Partnership
Monday – Friday 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. | Saturday 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
As the nation responds to the coronavirus COVID-19 health crisis, United Way California Capital Region (UWCCR) has announced the creation of the United Way California Capital Region (UWCCR) COVID-19 Local Relief Fund to provide essential resources for low-income households whose lives have been disrupted by the outbreak.
UWCCR will partner with local nonprofits who will work with low-income households in their geographic areas to help alleviate issues brought on by the COVID-19 health crisis. Funds will be provided to those whose level of need has been amplified by the COVID-19 health crisis. Nonprofit partners will identify and qualify affected low-income households to receive funds. Once a family is approved, they will be given access to Family Independence Initiative (FII) UpTogether online platform.
