United Way launches COVID-19 Relief Fund

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, United Way of the Lowcountry has launched the COVID-19 Relief Fund. The United Way of the Lowcountry COVID-19 Relief Fund was created to assist the Lowcountry’s most vulnerable neighbors with the resources they need during this critical time.  

United Way of the Lowcountry will distribute 100 percent of the funds collected to provide services to residents in Beaufort and Jasper Counties to meet basic needs including food, shelter, rent/utility assistance and other necessities due to the loss of income related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Any funds remaining after the pandemic will be reallocated to support United Way of the Lowcountry’s HELPLINE, which supports residents in need throughout Beaufort and Jasper Counties.

Donations can be made online at or by texting COVID19LC to 40403. Donations can also be mailed to: United Way of the Lowcountry, P.O. Box 202 Beaufort, S.C. 29901. (Make checks out to United Way of the Lowcountry with “COVID-19 Relief Fund” in the memo line.)
