Keeping Kids Warm

Recently, two members of the Knights of Columbus of East Lyme spent the day at the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Winter Coat DistributionCenter. Knights Mark Ennis and Rob Ligouri were on hand (along with United Way staffer Lamar Spurill) to distribute about 80 brand new winter coats to area children in need. Clients from 13 agencies in all benefited from their generosity.

Many thanks to the Knights of Columbus of East Lyme!

Grants Available for Hurricane Sandy Recovery

We are very excited to be partnering with the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut on a collaborative funding effort to help individuals, families and organizations stuggling to recover and rebuild in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, a superstorm that struck our region last October.

The partnership, Our Communities United...Hurricane Sandy & Her Aftermath, was launched last Friday in an event at United Way.
