Given the current and ever-evolving state of affairs surrounding COVID-19 (aka coronavirus), we are following the CDC and local government officials’ guidance around social distancing and reducing gatherings. We have decided to cancel all United Way of Salt Lake volunteer events until further notice. For those of you who are not in a high-risk group and are looking for ways to help, we have a list of volunteer opportunities and in-kind donation needs from our partners that have been deemed high-need. 

We have also launched a new initiative to ensure kids are staying on track while they are participating in school from home called Stay Safe, Stay Connected. The program ensures students have the support and materials they need to thrive while distance learning, including school supplies, technology, internet, educational materials, housing stability, and more. Learn how you can get involved at PromiseUtah.org/stay-safe-stay-connected.

Please contact our partner organizations before showing up to volunteer and ensure you are following any new protocols due to the new health concerns in our community.

If you can’t volunteer, help us support Utah 211’s partners who are working to serve Utahns feeling the economic consequences of the outbreak and expand these organization’s capacity to serve more people. Donate to the COVID-19 Community Response Fund.
