United Way of Portage County and the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin have partnered to establish the Portage County COVID-19 Relief Fund (PCCRF). The fund will provide flexible resources to organizations assisting individuals who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of the outbreak.
United Way of Portage County and the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin have each contributed $20,000 to launch this fund. Community members are encouraged to join this effort by donating online HERE (https://www.unitedwaypoco.org/donate). Checks can be mailed to United Way of Portage County at 1100 Centerpoint Drive #302 (ATTN: PCCRF), Stevens Point, WI 54481.
100% of money raised through the relief fund will be used to assist local community members with critical needs resulting from fallout due to the coronavirus. Stakeholder and community needs continue to be assessed to determine a transparent, timely process for relief fund distribution.
Individuals in need of assistance should call the United Way 2-1-1 help line. Hmong and Spanish translators are available. 2-1-1 is a free and confidential 24/7 help line.
