Updates Related to COVID-19: United Even When Apart

With our top priority being the health and safety of our employees, community partners, and the general public, I wanted to share updates with you on Head of the Lakes United Way’s plan for continuing our service to the community and doing our part in limiting the spread of COVID-19.


MONITORING & BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLANNING

Our management team is meeting regularly to access the following: 1) monitoring and following guidance from United Way Worldwide, the Centers for Disease Control, the Minnesota and Wisconsin Departments of Health and state public health officials; 2) developing contingency plans in preparation for a variety of scenarios; and 3) ensuring our employees are educated about preventive measures, including personal health, work-from-home protocols, social distancing in meetings and avoiding handshakes during this time.

We suggest following the recommendations found on the CDC website for guidance, including best practices for schools, health care facilities, working spaces and more.


COMMUNITY SUPPORT

United Way’s 2-1-1 Resource Hotline: If you or someone you know needs assistance accessing food, paying housing bills or other essential services, dial 2-1-1 or text the letters MNCOVID to 898-211. A Certified Community Resource Specialist will help you find available resources in your area. Additionally, visit 211.org/services/covid19 or Greater Twin Cities United Way’s 2-1-1 resource website for the latest information on COVID-19.

Donations: If you wish to make a donation to the Community Giving Campaign, please visit hlunitedway.org/donate. 


EVENTS & MEETINGS

We are either canceling, postponing, or moving to a virtual format for all events until further notice. We will reassess our policy as needed for events that are scheduled to take place after that time. We have also made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Live United Luncheon, scheduled for May 13, 2020. We would like to thank all of our donors, community partners, sponsors, volunteers, and supporters for making the effort to LIVE UNITED this past year.

Thank you for everything you’re doing to protect yourself and others during this difficult time, and thank you for your continued partnership. I will continue to keep you updated as we learn more.

Sincerely –

Matt Hunter, President, Head of the Lakes United Way
