GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Heart of West Michigan United Way is giving people a way to help "meet immediate needs in the community" during the coronavirus outbreak.

The nonprofit formed the Kent County Coronavirus Response Fund in partnership with local foundations and funders, according to the United Way today.

The fund will support nonprofits that are serving "vulnerable populations."

"Many of the nonprofit agencies are being stretched to capacity," the United Way said.

Heart of West Michigan United Way said it will match up to $50,000 in donations.

People can donate to the fund at the United Way's website.
