Week of Action 2021

Donations have been significantly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, the need for basic need items continues to increase in our community. United Way of Meriden and Wallingford is launching the “Week of Action” to respond to this need; a two and a half week virtual and in-person drive to collect emergency personal care items for our local pantries.

From June 21 through July 7 2021 we are encouraging local companies, groups and individuals to participate during our “Week of Action” initiative by donating emergency personal care items via our four Amazon WishLists for each pantry or by dropping items off to our office to help the families our agencies serve.

Donating is easy!  Here is how this virtual drive works.
