DID YOU KNOW? Donations to food pantries from the grocery store industry were down 70% during the pandemic, because grocery store shelves were being cleared out by consumers. Meanwhile, demand on food pantries was greater than ever, because of the dramatic rise in unemployment. Help us restock the pantries in greater Danbury! Let’s reduce food insecurity in our community!
CAN'T ATTEND? MAKE A DONATION!
United Way of Western CT fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in Western Connecticut, with a focus on hard-working, struggling households that we call ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income, Constrained, Employed).
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.
Through our past Day of Action events, we have mobilize volunteers in a variety of large-scale projects to benefit ALICE in greater Danbury, Southern Litchfield County and Stamford. Corporate volunteer groups have engaged in a STEM Street Fair with custom activities for local elementary and middle school children, a mobile children’s library book distribution, and improvement projects at local nonprofits.
