COVID-19 Information

Message from CEO, Kristen Birtwhistle

At this time United Way of San Joaquin County has made the difficult but critical decision to cancel and/or postpone upcoming events and large group meetings in response to guidance from the Center for Disease and Control’s (CDC) position on the Coronavirus or Covid-19 threat and the recent state of emergency announcement from the City of Stockton.

Within our state, Governor Gavin Newsom also announced that mass gatherings should be postponed, while on the world front, the continued impact of the coronavirus is disrupting conferences and events around the globe. Unfortunately, our programs are not immune

As such, we have decided to cancel all major events and larger group meetings hosted by United Way of San Joaquin County through the end of April.

United Way of San Joaquin County (UWSJC) has established a COVID-19 Emergency Donation site where 100% of the proceeds will be directed to our nonprofit partners and shelters across the county.

Let's PULL Together. #everyhumanbeing #COVID-19
