Curling up to sleep at night in my nice, safe bed is one of my favorite things to do. When I found out one of our partner agencies needs cribs that are up to code for some families that do not have a place for their babies to sleep, I felt compelled to help. After checking the codes, I cleaned off one that has been stored for the past 2 years, since my daughter had outgrown it. I am looking forward to tomorrow when a team will deliver it.

What a wintry week it has been! The weather sure has lots of us thinking and dreaming of spring! While we patiently await spring’s arrival there are some wonderful ways you could get involved with United Way of Southeastern Connecticut.
Happy New Year from all of us at United Way! Can you believe it is already 2014? I know I can’t. With a new year beginning so does a period of reflection on the past 365 days and sense of hope for a fresh start. Oh and of course, a resolution for 2014.
Have you seen the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut’s Mobile food pantry truck? It is absolutely awesome! This past Friday I got the opportunity to see the truck in action for the first time and was amazed by the opportunities created by this truck for the local community.
The truck itself was donated by CL&P to United Way and is one of three in the state of CT. It is a custom refrigerated truck that allows for foods such as meats and vegetables to be brought to locations throughout New London County. How neat!!
Good morning and Happy Holidays! My name is Laura Harris and I began working with United Way of Southeastern Connecticut about 2 weeks ago as a Loaned Employee sponsored by Mohegan Sun. I have had a great time so far learning how things work in the office and about all the great things our staff and volunteers are a part of!
