United Way Worldwide offers its deepest sympathy to the people affected by the spring storms and tornadoes that caused wide-spread destruction across several states from April 26-28. In the wake of natural disaster, United Ways engage in long-term recovery efforts to ensure a bright future for affected communities.

United Ways are working with private, public, faith-based and community partners to assess the long-term recovery needs of the community. Additionally, United Ways are assisting response agencies in the provision of food, shelter, emergency health and transportation for those affected by the tornadoes.
