DISASTER RELIEF EFFORT
There are 3 options available when it comes to supporting families affected by the recent floods in Southwest Michigan. Each option can be accessed by clicking on the buttons below.
- DONATE ITEMS: United Way of Southwest Michigan has created this community landing page where individuals can inform organizations of what items they have available to donate. This solution will streamline referrals for getting donated items out to people who need it most. For individuals looking for items due to flood damage, please call 2-1-1 to be referred to the correct agency that has access to the item database.
VOLUNTEER: Interested parties can view volunteer opportunities related to the flooding. For organizations coordinating volunteers to help flood victims, please contact Julee Laurent, Volunteer Engagement Manager at United Way at email@example.com. Thank you to the 500 volunteers who came out this past weekend to help our neighbors in Berrien Springs and Niles. The next round of volunteer opportunities will be posted next week.
DONATE FUNDS: To help address the problems of the widespread flooding, United Way of Southwest Michigan and the Berrien Community Foundation have partnered to establish a Disaster Relief Fund to help with the recovery needs of families impacted. 100% of all funds will go directly to disaster relief assistance.
