Under the leadership of State Senator Andrew Maynard, New London County has received a state grant of $250,000 to support efforts to prevent homelessness of families and to re-house homeless families and single adults. United Way of Southeastern Connecticut will serve as the grantee, working in close cooperation with local providers of service to the homeless.
The United Way Corporate Benefactor program is your opportunity to align your business with the strong and trusted United Way brand.
Why hold a Food Drive?
To celebrate the holiday and help provide a nutritious meal on Thanksgiving, The Gemma E. Moran United Way Labor Food Center is seeking donations for children, families, and individuals in our community struggling with hunger. In addition to turkeys, the Food Center welcomes donations of stuffing, cranberry sauce, canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, and canned meat and soups.
United Way welcomed Ellen Mail (second from right in photo) as the newest to join the Americorps VISTAs working with the New London County Food Policy Council.
