The Atlantic Compassion Fund is helping to meet the needs of vulnerable people and families across PEI who are most at-risk due to physical distancing and the other public health precautions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Generous contributions from local businesses, individuals, and the provincial government have helped the United Way of PEI and other local agencies continue to adapt and provide crucial services to our local communities in a safe, efficient way.
