Student Emergency Funds

The United Way of Southeast Missouri helped establish Student Emergency Funds in 15 area schools. These donor dollars are used to aid students who need help with items that may be obstacles to learning. So far, the funds have helped students purchase glasses, provide food, assist with testing costs, and even purchase critical medication that saved a child's life. Currently, we have a fund established in at least one public school in each of the 4 counties we serve. If you would like to donate to a particular school in our footprint, please call our office at 573-334-9634. Live here. Give here. Help here.
