United Way of Siouxland wants to thank those of you who have reached out to offer support for those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
In addition to supporting volunteer efforts, United Way Worldwide has launched a national United Way Harvey Recovery Fund and is launching the United Way Irma Recovery Fund. Leonardo DiCaprio made a $1 Million gift to launch the Harvey Recovery Fund. These funds are a response to individual and corporate donors who are looking for one, simplified place to give and impact the entire affected area.
www.unitedway.org/hurricane-harvey and www.unitedway.org/recovery provides answers to how United Ways are responding on the ground and provides a link to donate to the Recovery Funds. 100% of individual donations given to the United Way Harvey/Irma Recovery Fund(s) will be distributed to local United Ways in the affected areas.
Those needing assistance in the affected areas should dial 2-1-1. If you have family or friends in need of help in either Houston or Florida, please remind them of this service.
