Volunteer and Support Your Community
United Way of West Central Connecticut offers companies, community groups, students, and individuals in our communities the opportunities to be volunteers, to be "hand raisers". We assist in connecting and collaborating with local partner agencies and area nonprofits that are in need of support.
Opportunities may include hosting a collection drive, participating in a group project, volunteering at an event, or joining a committee.
For more information contact Sarah Mitchell, Resource Development Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org or call (860) 582-9559 x 407.

Adopt-A-Child Back to School Program
United Way of West Central Connecticut Adopt-A-Child Back To School Program is underway for the 2023/2024 school year. We are in need of backpacks, school supplies, and an outfit or gift card for at least 600 students attending school in Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, and Plymouth.
If you would like to sponsor a child, or if you have any questions about our program, please reach out to Kimberly at email@example.com or give us a call at 860-582-9559. Once you have signed up, you will be provided with an information sheet for each child that you choose to sponsor, a list of recommended school supplies, and a letter with important program information and dates.

United Way of West Central Connecticut's Joy of Sharing Program has been providing food, toys, and gifts to children, teens, and families in Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, and Plymouth for over a decade.
