United Way Irma/Maria Recovery Fund
United Way has created the United Way Irma/Maria Recovery Fund to support local communities in the Southeast United States and Caribbean affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. As part of our goal to build stronger communities, and to fight for every person in every community, United Ways in the affected areas will continue to raise money locally and respond to emerging needs as appropriate.
United Way’s Irma/Maria Recovery fund will complement those efforts, help smaller United Ways who may not have the capacity to create their own fund and provide a single clearinghouse for individual and corporate donors who want to impact affected areas.
With your help, United Way has raised almost $30 million for mid- and long-term recovery from National and Local funds.
