    United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region responds daily to COVID-19 requests in our community. Each week, we use your donations to provide critical help to those in greatest need. Now during the reopening and recovery phases, we continue to help those who are struggling to provide food for their families and keep them safe.
    Since last month we have: 
    • Provided food for 2,000 people by restocking a community food pantry.

    • Purchased PPE to local nonprofits so they can safely reopen their educational programs and help serve 625 children.

    • For 25 formerly incarcerated individuals, making a new life, we provided basic hygiene items like toothpaste, shampoo, soap and more.

    • Helped a struggling young mother coming home with a newborn by providing baby clothing.

    • We distributed PPE and necessities for 1,924 families and children, providing undergarments, Bomba socks, clothing, diapers, wipes, blankets, sneakers, sanitizer and masks, school supplies and more through our No Contact Day of Sharing Program. Contact Rebecca Lull ([email protected] or 845-471-1900 ext 3113) for more information about this program that serves nonprofits, faith-based organizations and schools. Arrangements must be made in advance.

    • United Way’s free confidential 24/7 2-1-1 Helpline has received 14,042 COVID-19 related calls over the past 7 months.

    • Thank you for joining us to deliver help to 92,146 people in Dutchess and Orange counties since March 12. Together we are #DOCommunityStrong against COVID-19.
