The fund provides financial support to charities and other qualified donees adapting their frontline services to support vulnerable Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ECSF is funded by the Government of Canada and is being administered in collaboration with United Way Centraide Canada, Community Foundations of Canada and the Canadian Red Cross.
The United Way Peterborough & District is pleased to share an update on the recipients of this funding. Over the past month, United Way Peterborough & District has received over 40 applications for community programs and services that support vulnerable community members.
