Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who made an enormous impact for the city of Stamford at our 2018 Stamford Day of Action! You all packed more than 450 weekend food packs for children in food insecure homes, 500 personal hygiene kits for persons at risk of homelessness, and created 90 "bucket filler" craft kits for Stamford first graders at KT Murphy School! Plus, at Rogers International School, you organized and conducted STEM educational workshops for 90 third grade students! In additon, volunteers learned about volunteering for VITA, board service and took a walk in ALICE's shoes.


At the heart of United Way’s strength are our dedicated volunteers--the hand raisers who step up to provide help and hope to those in our community who are struggling.

Join with hundreds of local volunteers for our annual days of volunteerism to complete a variety of service projects throughout Greater Danbury and New Milford, and the city of Stamford. Many of our projects focus on supporting agencies that help ALICE® households (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) who struggle and live paycheck-to-paycheck, addressing needs related to health, education and financial stability.
