Granite United Way is Here to Help

Across New Hampshire and Windsor County, Vermont, 1 in 4 families struggle to afford their basic needs. 
One minor issue can create a major financial hardship. With the COVID-19 in our communities, these families are, particularly in danger. One missed paycheck can be catastrophic.

When COVID-19 hit our communities back in March, Granite United Way was amongst the first responders.

We quickly equipped our 211 NH hotline with additional resources needed to manage the skyrocketing call volume associated with this health crisis. 
We mobilized our public health and social service networks to meet the rising critical needs of individuals and families. 
We worked with our business partners to expand learning opportunities for students who are now going to school remotely.

Your generosity is making an impact!

Whether you made a gift to the COVID-19 Relief Fund, or continue to support Granite United Way through workplace giving or other means, you are making a difference.

Your gifts are connecting people to COVID-19 resources including medical, unemployment and housing supports.
You’re providing food and financial assistance to families most impacted by our new reality. 
You’re finding solutions to overcome the barriers people are facing to stay employed.

The stories below detail just a few of the ways you are making a difference.



In response to the immediate needs of our community, we established the Granite United Way COVID-19 Relief Fund. 

We have partnered with local organizations for fund distribution. For information on accessing help during COVID-19, visit our regional pages:

As always, Granite United Way's 211 NH initiative is there 24 hours a day to connect people with the resources they need in times of crisis. Governor Chris Sununu announced that 211 NH would be taking calls from NH residents regarding COVID-19. To date these Information and Referral Specialists have answered over 49,000 calls and are providing the most up to date information.

Thank you for being an integral part of what we do!

With you by our side, Granite United Way has provided a helping hand to more than 22,000 people impacted by this health crisis. 
Your compassion makes our community a better place to live, and we are grateful to have you alongside us in our work.
