The COVID-19 outbreak is having a tremendous impact on many of our community members leaving them more at-risk than ever to economic insecurity and hunger and increased mental health vulnerabilities due to social isolation. We’re here to help.

As part of Employment and Social Development Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund, United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo is supporting local community service organizations to provide rapid, innovative emergency community support to vulnerable community members.

We call this local love.

UWTNC has received $441,645.00 to help front-line service agencies support those who need it most in your community. The Fund aims to help charities and non-profit organizations adapt and increase frontline services for at-risk populations during COVID-19.

Individual organizations, or multi-agency collaborations, who are working to meet the needs of vulnerable people impacted by COVID-19 within the Thompson Nicola Cariboo region are welcome to apply.

Applications open May 19, 2020 and close June 8, 2020.

Local Love starts when we help one another.
