United Way of Miami-Dade will work with United Ways and other nonprofits to support both immediate and long-term recovery needs.
Operation Helping Hands is a partnership between United Way of Miami-Dade, the Miami Herald/el Nuevo Herald, and JCS Helpline Services that was created in 1998 in the aftermath of devastating hurricanes Mitch and Georges, to provide the people of South Florida a way to extend a helping hand to their neighbors in need. Since then, it has been reactivated numerous times in response to disasters and other emergency situations.
