Your community needs your local love now more than ever.

United Way donors like you help make life-changing connections possible for vulnerable families and individuals in need across our community.  And right now the need is greater than ever.

Covid-19 has had a devasting effect on our neighbourhoods. It has changed how we live, work and interact with one another. But it has been our most vulnerable and isolated citizens, those who were already struggling before the pandemic struck, who have been hit the hardest.

While we’ve witnessed extraordinary need in our communities as a result of the pandemic, we have also seen unprecedented acts of volunteerism and support. The exceptional generosity of donors like you, in this extreme time of need has enabled United Way of the Lower Mainland to act quickly, pivoting and developing programs to serve immediate needs, as well as provide continued support to families and individuals as we slowly begin to recover.

Through your acts of local love, we’ve been able to harness the power of community and have seen what can be achieved when we work together, even when staying physically apart.
