Nonprofits Supporting Health and Wellbeing

“My kids are loving the program. It makes me feel so good that while I’m at work they’re in safe hands during this incredibly difficult time. My son has stopped worrying about me going to work, as he has others to play with to occupy his mind.” Parent of child at South County YMCA

Their program capacity is around 600 children in a safe environment for children of first responders and essential workers. Your support has helped make it possible for so many children to have a safe place to go while their parents are helping others on the front lines of this crisis.

“The funding from United Way is transformative and allows us to source and get food out into communities very, very quickly.” St. Louis Area Foodbank

Your support has helped the St. Louis Area Foodbank purchase bulk essential staples like canned tuna, peanut butter, and canned vegetables for clients. They’ve hosted 137 pop-up distribution events since March 16, each serving around 300 families, and have distributed more than 800,000 pounds of food in one week alone.

“We’ve been partners with United Way for more than 30 years. We are in crisis and fighting a war. When United Way selected us to be a recipient, it made us feel not alone, and validated that our work is important. Because of their funding, we can say “yes” to things we may have no be able to before.” St. Louis Crisis Nursery
