How You Can Help

There are two ways you can help the victims and first responders to Arizona disasters through the United Way of Northern Arizona (UWNA). You can make a monetary contribution, or register as a volunteer through UWNA. Monetary donations can be made by check, cash or credit card. These donations will be used towards supporting disaster relief efforts in Northern Arizona. Cash and check donations can be dropped off or mailed to the UWNA office at 1515 E. Cedar Ave, Suite D1. Please include "Disaster Relief" in the memo line of all checks. For credit card donations please click the "Donate Now" button to the left of this message.
