United Way of Sarnia-Lambton Compassion Fund

COVID-19 inspires the United Way of Sarnia-Lambton to create a Compassion Fund

 

Please note that the links are not active with some cell phones and users may have to connect with a computer or call.

 

Homelessness, food insecurity, mental illness and precarious employment are already really difficult things to experience. Now, as public health measures are being made across the region in response to COVID-19, people who are already vulnerable are facing major disruptions and new risks. Many people are in crisis right now.

 

The purpose of this fund is to support agencies who are stretched to the limit, to provide our community citizens with basic needs and services including food, clothing, shelter and security, including mental health needs.

 

Now more than ever we need to pull together to support those who need it most. The United Way of Sarnia-Lambton Compassion Fund will do exactly that. 

 

It will help to meet basic needs, reduce the impact of further marginalization and bring people back together when the time is right.

In response to requests, the United Way of Sarnia-Lambton has set up an emergency Compassion Fund to help agencies across Lambton County to respond to the unique, immediate and emerging needs in their local community.

 

United Way is calling on you to take action now and donate.
