Adopt-A-Child Back to School Program

Adopt-A-Child Back to School Program

Thanks to the generosity of many donors, all children have been "adopted" at this time!  We are still accepting donations of backpacks, school supplies, and packages of new socks and underwear, which will be donated to area schools to help kids in need throughout the year.

To get involved, please call or email Kimberly Hernandez at (860) 582-9559 x 405 or

Adopt-A-Child Donations will be accepted at the United Way office on August 9 & 10 from 9 am – 4 pm.


Thank You to our 2015 Donors!

On behalf of the United Way of West Central Connecticut and our community partners, we would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to all those who participated in the 2015 Adopt-A-Child Back to School Program.  Over 700 local students were adopted for the first day of school thanks to the generous individuals and organizations in our community! As a result of your kindness, these children from the communities of Bristol, Burlington, Plainville and Plymouth received new outfits, backpacks and school supplies for the first day of school. These donations will help to ensure that these children start off the school year with confidence and hope. 

Thank you to everyone in our community that Lives United!
