Some new federal dollars are available for charitable projects or groups via the United Way. Local UW rep Gail Ungstad tells The Leader the feds have pledged $350 million “for COVID-related activities.”
This is across the whole country.
There is specific funding, Ungstad says, for seniors – for example for personal protective equipment that may be lacking in seniors’ housing or long-term care facilities.
To find out how to apply for funding through the United Way, the place to start is the website – unitedwayabnw.org.
Better yet, the Government of Alberta will match any donations made to United Way, up to the end of May. How to donate? See above.
