Adopt-A-Child donations sought by United Way

The United Way of West Central Connecticut is continuing its Adopt–A–Child Back to School Program. This year, over 550 children have registered, and donations are needed

United Way is looking for donation.

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 purchasing your gift. Even a monetary donation will help the United Way staff purchase items for these children.
