We are working around the clock to support Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, as we recover TOGETHER from Hurricane Sally.
United Way of West Florida is here before, during, and after disasters. While there is much work to be done in helping our community recover, your gift of money or time helps families get back in their homes and give our vulnerable community members the care they need. UWWF works with local organizations to thoughtfully build strategies to create resilient communities.
WAYS TO AID IN RELIEF EFFORTS
The most immediate and useful way to support recovery efforts in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties is through financial assistance. This allows relief organizations to purchase and provide the supplies and resources most needed. To donate to UWWF's Hurricane Relief Fund, text 850RELIEF to 41444.
You can also support recovery efforts through volunteerism. We have combined our efforts with Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies (BRACE) to coordinate volunteers for the impacted areas. If you would like to support those affected by Hurricane Sally, please create a profile through the UWWF online volunteer portal, GET CONNECTED. BRACE will recruit volunteers by using this platform.
