UNITED WAY - In Southeastern Michigan, 44 percent of families struggle to afford their basic needs. One minor issue can create a major financial hardship. With the new coronavirus, COVID-19, in our community, these families are particularly in danger. One missed paycheck can be catastrophic. While all United Way-managed, in-person volunteer projects have been suspended until Spring 2021, many of our community partners are still in need of in-person and virtual volunteers, and/or in-kind donations. Please browse the links on this page to find an opportunity to assist our partners and community.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - CDC reports COVID-19 case counts, deaths, and laboratory testing numbers daily online. Data on the COVID-19 website and CDC’s COVID Data Tracker are based on the most recent numbers reported by states, territories, and other jurisdictions. Data are dependent on jurisdictions’ timely and accurate reporting. In addition, CDC regularly reports provisional death certificate data on the NCHS website. Reporting the number of deaths by using death certificates ultimately provides more complete information but is a longer process and, therefore, these numbers will be less than the deaths count on the COVID-19 website.
