Water Restoration
$233,717

In partnership with Home to Stay and the City, United Way has provided financial assistance to 64 households, hooking them up to city water. This provided quick relief, sustainable water and kept them in their homes, saving us dollars for rehousing.

LEVERAGING IN-KIND DONATIONS

Through leveraging donations of basic need items, household items, building supplies, appliances and so much more we have been able to stretch local dollars and invest them in additional recovery efforts.

Basic Needs
$1,400,000
We’ve collected and distributed food, laundry vouchers, tools, personal care items, cleaning supplies and more. In addition, we’ve partnered with Senior Services to provide high-quality meals delivered to survivors living in hotels.

Appliances
$500,000
Appliances are expensive and hard to get in a Covid-19 environment. In partnership with Whirlpool, we hosted two discounted appliance sales, saving our neighbors over $500,000.

Building Supplies
$1,000,000
To date, we have coordinated over $1 million in donated drywall, siding, insulation, paint, adhesives and more. This stretches our local dollars further and lessens burdens for local families. Supplies have been deployed regionally and to local businesses to support rebuild efforts
