ST. LOUIS — During this time of social distancing, it’s becoming harder for some in our area to take care of themselves and their families. The United Way of Greater St. Louis is supporting the people in our community by partnering with non-profits to provide them with supplies for cleaning, personal care, and babies; food resources; mental health and trauma counseling for children and adults; and resources for the unique needs of senior citizens.

These much-needed resources cost money. You can help by making a monetary donation to the United Way’s COVID-19 Response Fund online, or you can mail check. If you mail a check, write "COVID-19" on the memo line. Send checks to:

United Way of Greater St. Louis - COVID-19 Response
PO BOX 503485
St. Louis, MO 63150-3485

You can also participate through grocery shopping. 5 On Your Side is partnering with Schnucks for another Round Up at the Register campaign. All you need to do is shop at Schnucks before April 19 and round your total up to the next dollar amount. All money raised through the campaign will be donated to United Way and stay right here in St. Louis.

If you need support from the United Way, visit or call them by dialing 2-1-1.
