In the coming weeks, the COVID-19 pandemic will change the way we live our lives. Here at United Way of the Alberta Capital Region, we are leading efforts in collaboration with our partners to assess and prepare for how COVID-19 will not only affect our health, but also the social fabrics across our region.
We are launching a rapid response to support our local community during this global crisis. We are asking you to consider how the challenges we face as a community are impacting the most vulnerable and urge you to help in any way you can.
Match Available: From April 15-May 31, the Government of Alberta will match gifts made to supporting vulnerable people during the COVID-19 pandemic. For more info about this match, click here.
With your support, we can address the following needs for the most vulnerable:
- Help for seniors – Ensure that while vulnerable people are isolated, they are also supported.
- Basic needs – Ensure people have access to life’s essentials, such as food.
- Capacity for community services – Ensure that community partners can continue to do their vital work.
- Mental health support – Enable crisis lines and system navigation services.

United, we can overcome the current challenges that our community faces.
Thank you for your generosity,
