United Way of the Plains has set up a Laid-Off Workers Fund to assist individuals who have recently been or will be laid off from jobs in Sedgwick County.

To those who qualify, the fund will provide support for a mortgage (or rent) and utilities. No funds will go directly to individuals; bills will be paid on the person’s behalf directly to a landlord, mortgage company or utility company.

The fund will be managed by United Way of the Plains with no administration charge.

Individuals wishing to donate to the fund can:

Give online at United Way of the Plains

Text the word LAYOFF to 41444

Make checks payable to “United Way of the Plains” and note “Laid-Off Workers Fund” in the memo section of the check.
Checks can be mailed to:
United Way of the Plains, Attn: Laid-Off Workers Fund
PO Box 47208
Wichita, KS 67201-7208
