Many in our community have been donating their time, talent, and resources to sewing homemade masks for those in healthcare and beyond. UWSP held a national Pointer Day of Sewing on April 20 and community members have banded together to form the Sew Together for Covid-19 Facebook community.

Working in partnership, the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin and United Way of Portage County established the Portage County COVID-19 Relief Fund (PCCRF) to provide flexible resources to organizations working to address critical needs of our area, granting nearly $200,000 to date.
