British Columbia has a unique set of challenges. Rapidly rising costs are putting pressure on grocery bills. After-school and summer programs for local kids or support services for isolated seniors are luxuries that many simply can’t afford right now. United Way British Columbia is uniquely set up to overcome these challenges.
Thanks to donors like you, we can provide nutritious, culturally appropriate meals to those in need, give local kids access to high quality, after-school programs, connect people in need of support with the help they deserve and lift isolated seniors from loneliness.
Give now or join your workplace campaign and help strengthen the community that matters most, yours.
How you can help
No one should have to decide between food and rent, and yet, 1 in 7 Canadians is facing hunger. Our Community Food Hubs mobilize thousands of volunteers to sort, prep or deliver fresh, nutritious food for those who need it most. Let’s be here for fuller plates and hearts. Give today.
All children deserve a chance to reach their full potential, but 1 in 5 BC kids live in poverty. United Way provides safe, accessible programs and activities that help kids develop friendships, build confidence and learn new skills. Let’s be here for brighter futures. Give today.
More than 1 in 10 people aged fifteen or older say they always or often feel lonely. United Way’s Hi Neighbour initiative helps combat social isolation and supports social connectedness and participation to build safer, healthier, more inclusive, and resilient communities for all. Let’s be here for each other. Give today.
We can all use a little help from time to time, but sometimes we just don’t know where to turn. That’s exactly what our 211 British Columbia helpline is here for. It provides free, confidential information and connection to a broad range of community, government, and social services to help when you need it.
These are just some of the many ways we’re strengthening vital connections in our communities. Let’s be here for each other.
