United Way of Western Connecticut is honored to partner once again with The News-Times on The Giving Fund, a community holiday program that identifies 30 local families and individuals in need of special assistance this holiday season. Five stories will be published each week in The News-Times for 6 weeks, starting on Thanksgiving.
Each story will be assigned a case number. Case numbers and details can be found by clicking the link below. Once donation information is complete, input the case number(s) you are donating to at the bottom of this page. If you are dividing your gift among more than one case, please indicate how much you would like to go to each.

NOTE: All of the money collected through the initiative will go directly to aid those in need. No administrative costs are being deducted. Should the total amount collected for any case exceed the amount needed, the remaining money will go to an underfunded case. If all cases are funded, donations will be used for other United Way programs that assist local ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) families.
