Emergency Assistance Fund

When disasters strike our community, United Way of Thurston County's Emergency Assistance Fund provides immediate cash assistance to families and individuals impacted to help replace necessities such as clothing, food, hygiene and household items.
United Way will use 100% of donations made to the Emergency Assistance Fund to provide rapid financial assistance to those impacted by the current crisis. United Way will hold any remaining funds to address future local emergencies.
Individuals and businesses may make gifts in person or by mail at United Way of Thurston County, located at 3525 7th Ave SW Suite 201, Olympia, WA 98502.
Your donation to this fund helps people pay for food, shelter, and other basic needs when other relief efforts are unavailable.
