Corporate Volunteerism

United Way of Western CT helps ALICE prosperby engaging local companies in service

More than ever, employees are interested in making an impact in their communities.

Through events such as Day of Action and activities created just for your work site--such as assembling literacy kits--United Way makes it easy for company employees to be vital contributors to the life of the community while still working full time.

Don’t have a Community Relations Department and want to offer year-round volunteer opportunities for your employees? We can manage it all for you! To get started, contact Ashley Gaudiano at
