COVID-19 Response and Recovery

Gifts to United Way of Story County’s COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund and the LIVE UNITED Food Drive are instrumental in helping our community manage changing needs and work toward long-term recovery. Here is a snapshot of where those donations have been invested to date.

Along with the numbers, we know there are real people on the other side of these donations feeling this support.  Read this story of how United Way supported MICA's food pantry as they pivoted to delivering vital supplies to combat local food insecurity. "There are no words to express my deepest appreciation and heartfelt thanks to MICA/Keliena for the food deliveries to my home. Bringing food and household supplies for us is an assurance that my family has enough food to eat and I don't have to worry." - Willa, a client of MICA's food pantry.
