NOT ALL PANDEMIC STORIES ARE THE SAME.

We’re all in this together, but many have been left out.

Strengthening vital connections in your community

The pandemic continues to effect communities across British Columbia. Emergency food providers are still at critical breaking points. Self-isolating seniors continue to face loneliness. Children still face economic barriers to activities and support they need to thrive. With our partners, United Way British Columbia continues to keep communities strong, while the pandemic effects remain.  

Delivering food

A few months into the pandemic, Janet lost her job. With her young daughter to support, she was struggling to make ends meet – especially putting food on the table. Thanks to donors like you we helped Janet access United Way Food Hubs in her area and turned her pandemic story around.

Connecting seniors

Before the pandemic, Delores had a wide social circle. Self-isolation started to affect her more than she realized. She was lonely, depressed and some days, not sure how she would get her groceries. Thanks to the support of donors like you, United Way helped connect Dolores with food delivery services in her area and access to check-in calls to keep her connected.

Supporting youth

While most kids are getting back to normal routines, many like Samira are still facing economic barriers to getting the support they need. The pandemic has also left many kids and youth feeling worried about their mental health, loss of education, and social networks. Thanks to our donors, United Way helped connect Samira with learning activities, support and friendships that help her thrive.
