Tornado Relief Response

Together, we help ease the burden caused by this disaster and provided much-needed support for our most vulnerable neighbors.

In the aftermath of the devastating tornadoes that struck our region on December 9, 2023, our communities are facing difficult challenges. Many have been left in distress, and immediate support is crucial for their recovery.

How we’re making it better

To meet the needs of our community during this time, United Way is relying on its strong public-private partnerships to raise essential funds, recruit much-needed volunteer help and provide support to organizations helping those most affected by the tornadoes.
