- Basic Needs: Food & Shelter

- Access to Medical & Legal Assistance & Home Safety
- Education & Youth Enrichment

Donors will be able to browse through a list of organizations and give to an organization that is important to them. Donors also have the opportunity to donate to the COVID-19 Community Response Fund partnership between the Community Foundation and United Way of Marathon County.
