How You Can Help Our Community
United Way Bay County – United Way Bay County COVID-19 Volunteer Form. The United Way of Bay County is working with many local organizations and community partners in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As we collaborate to address the needs of our community (especially those who are the most vulnerable such as senior citizens, children and the ALICE population), volunteers will be vital.
Bay Area Community Foundation – COVID-19 Community Response Fund administered by the Bay Area Community Foundation, will provide flexible resources to organizations in our area working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of this outbreak.
