United Way of West Central Connecticut once again will be offering its Adopt–A–Child Back to School Program to help the many needy children in the area.
If you or your company wants to take part in this valuable program and help a child in need, call Kimberly Hernandez today at United Way (860-582-9559 x 405). You will be asked to provide a first day of school outfit for a child, along with a backpack filled with school supplies. United Way will provide you with a child’s first name, gender, clothing sizes, and favorite colors to help you in buying your gift.
Even a small monetary donation can go a long way to help the United Way staff purchase items for these children.
Donations should be dropped off to United Way on either Aug. 9 or 10 between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., so that they can distribute the gifts before the first day of school.
