United Way’s Project Lunchbox weekend food program will still be delivering weekend food packages to New Ulm District schools. Meals can be picked up on Thursday or Friday of each week at the school your child attends.

If your child is facing food sensitivity in your home, please go to the link below, print off the Project Lunch box signup, mail or email it to the United Way, (PO BOX 476, New Ulm, MN 56073) or drop off at your child’s school. During this emergency, the United Way is waiving the income restrictions for this program and anyone who feels they need it can sign up at https://www.unitedwaybrowncountyarea.org/project-lunchbox

The United Way, with the Help of Twin River Design, has established a COVID 19 Emergency Fund. All funds donated to the United Way, through Tip Jar, during the social distancing and closure of our local businesses due to COVID 19 will go to Brown County non-profits that provide relief and assistance to individuals in the areas of health and basic needs. It is the goal of Twin River Design and the United Way to ensure that every person is connected to the resources they need, when they need them, and that we stay HEALTHY and UNITED!

To make a donation, please go to our website, www.Unitedwaybrowncountyarea.org and click on the COVID 19 Fund button in the upper right hand corner, or follow the direct link below: https://www.unitedwaybrowncountyarea.org/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=4
