United Way of Boone County COVID-19 Response Fund

SUPPORTING LOCAL NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
SERVING BOONE COUNTY'S MOST VULNERABLE NEIGHBORS

Boone County’s health and human service organizations are experiencing an unprecedented demand for services from residents significantly impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

It’s critical these organizations have the resources they need to continue to operate at the highest capacity.
Your donation will support the agencies that are ensuring our neighbors can access critical needs in this time of crisis, including emergency food assistance, housing assistance and other unforeseeable needs.

That's why United Way of Boone County has created the COVID-19 Response Fund, to shore up emergency-relief programs and other community resources that will be strained in the coming weeks and months.

If you are able, we ask that you join us in our efforts and make a donation today.
Donations to the COVID-19 Response Fund can be mailed to:

United Way of Boone County
220 W. Locust Street
Belvidere, IL  61008

All funds raised stay in Boone County with 100% of all donations going directly to support services for those in need.
