Kick off Summer for a Cause! Run, Walk or Ride Anywhere to support the United Way of Greater Newark. As social distancing forces us apart, compassion and connection defy that distance. No matter where or how you move your feet, we will Live United to make an impact in our community.
Join as an Individual. Join a Team. Be a Live United Fundraiser
Here’s how we’re supporting our community during these unprecedented times:
Community COVID Fund
In order to support the community and our non-profit partners during the COVID-19 crisis, we have established The Community COVID-19 Fund.
Parent Exchange Program
So many families in our community are facing financial difficulties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and are unable to purchase items needed for their babies. United Way of Greater Newark has set up The Parent Exchange to connect donors with parents in need of formula and disposable diapers. Many families need resources to address these basic needs of their children and your donation will make a tremendous difference.
We are working to fill food desert gaps in our community.
· 36 local agencies and pantries receive food supplies
· Over 33,000lbs of food distributed to the Newark community per week and we are expanding to Irvington and East Orange.
