Community Programs

In addition to annual funding and advocacy, United Way Northumberland also runs five in-house programs that’s impact thousands of individuals and families across Northumberland County.

Day of Caring

Local volunteers generously provide their time & skills to complete necessary tasks at different locations in Cobourg, Port Hope, and Colborne.

Backpacks for Kids

United Way Northumberland is proud to lead this program. Since 2005, we’ve equipped 25,000 local students with backpacks and school supplies.

Period Promise

Periods are just a fact of life. But if you’re living in poverty – or vulnerable in other ways – access to necessary menstrual products can be challenging.

Northumberland Eats

The Northumberland Eats voucher program, a partnership between United Way Northumberland and Northumberland County, aims to provide food support to individuals and families while supporting local businesses across Northumberland County.
