United Way Responds in Times of Crisis

In recent days, we have seen the devastation of life and property brought about by unprecedented flooding in Colorado and witnessed the tragic loss of life at the Navy Yard in Washington, DC.

Along with all members of the United Way family, we want to join the outpouring of condolences to all those impacted by these life altering events, especially the victims, families, friends, colleagues and neighbors of these tragedies.  We send our thoughts and prayers to all those directly - or indirectly involved.

During times of crisis, United Way’s tradition has been to assist communities by helping to meet their immediate needs and helping rebuild over the long haul. We also want to extend our support to our United Way colleagues in Colorado and Washington D.C. who have stepped up to offer their support, care and leadership during this time of need.

Towards that end, we invite you to consider helping families recover from the floods in Colorado by giving to the Foothills Relief Fund.

Managed by Foothills United Way, 100% of donations to this fund will be used to provide health and human services to families and individuals in need. Cash donations are most needed; please do not send clothes, food or other items.

As always, 100% of donations made to United Way of Williamson County for disaster relief efforts will be directed to the local United Way coordinating rebuilding efforts.

In Washington D.C., United Way Worldwide will provide support for the local United Way as they work with local partners to respond to the needs of the community.

For more information about how you can help in either Colorado or Washington D.C., visit the websites of Foothills United Way or United Way of National Capital Area.
