We are here to serve the needs of our LOCAL community, especially in times of great adversity. The Plymouth Community United Way is raising money for the COVID-19 Relief Fund to support those who have been affected by the virus. This will provide basic needs for members of our LOCAL community including seniors, families, children, and community agencies. Donations will help us support vulnerable populations here in Plymouth, Canton, and Western Wayne County.
In 2020, PCUW awarded $60,000 in special grants to local groups and agencies to aid with rental assistance, utilities, care products, food assistance, counseling, grief support, technology needs and PPE. We are continuing to award special grants in 2021 due to having additional funds available for any COVID-19 related needs- thanks to the generosity of our donors. Agencies can contact PCUW directly and individuals should contact the Plymouth Salvation Army if assistance is needed.
To continue to aid local organizations and agencies during these challenging time, we ask you to donate to the COVID-19 Relief Fund. Donors can either mail donations to P.O. Box 6356, Plymouth, MI 48170, make a donation on our website, or text PCUW to 41444. Make sure to specify the COVID-19 Relief Fund with your donation.
