¡Unidos, superaremos esto!
Like many nonprofit organizations (and other businesses), United Way of Kern County is taking a hit during this pandemic. If you are able to donate at this time, your money can help us assist the most vulnerable members of our communities. You can also donate to our Covid-19 Relief Fund; gifts directed there will go straight to local families and individuals facing financial hardship directly because of the pandemic.
