Community Action Agencies throughout Utah remain committed to helping families during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. These agencies provide important food, housing, transportation, and other services that are considered essential. 2020 has been a difficult year with many fundraisers and food drives cancelled or limited. Yet the need remains unusually high due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Donate to the Utah COVID-19 Community Fund
All United Ways in Utah have come together to establish a COVID-19 response fund to help families. Many Community Action Agencies have a close relationship with their local United Way agency and CAP Utah anticipates that a portion of donated funds will be given to our network to meet local needs.

Donate to the Utah Food Bank
The Utah Food Bank supports many of the food pantries across the state, especially for our Community Action Agencies in rural Utah. Cash donations made to the Utah Food Bank are leveraged well and every $1.00 contributed will provide $7.66 in food for families through Community Action Agencies in Utah or other great community partners.
