COVID-19 Support: Atlantic Compassion Fund

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.

Here on PEI, more than $100,000 of donations to the fund are already out the door and in the hands of local agencies who are adapting their vital services, and the United Way of PEI team is making sure they are having the biggest impact possible.
