United We Learn Session: The COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 Pandemic: United Way’s Response

Recorded Friday June 26, 2020

United Way’s primary concern is the safety and health of our community. During this session, we will be discussing the COVID-19 pandemic and how United Way of Central Illinois responded and continues to respond. We will touch on how United Way of Central Illinois partnered with The Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln to create the COVID-19 Response Fund to deploy resources to community-based organizations at the front lines of a coronavirus spread in Illinois’ greater capital region. In addition to the COVID-19 Response Fund we will discuss how we adapted our partnerships with our programs, helped connect the community to services and offered opportunities for people wanting to help. We will also tap in to how we are moving from response to recovery and how our community can continue to help.


United We Learn is a new opportunity to learn more about United Way and our work in the community. These virtual learning sessions are offered and hosted by United Way of Central Illinois. Each session will only last for fifteen minutes and will be recorded so they can be viewed at a later time.
