Week of Action 2023 June 20th-27th!

With inflation causing a rise in the cost of all basic need items, the need for these items continues to substantially escalate in our community. United Way of Meriden and Wallingford will be launching “Week of Action” this month of June to respond to this need; a week in-person drive to collect emergency personal care items for local pantries: Master’s Manna, GLOW Food Pantry, New Opportunities of Greater Meriden & The Salvation Army-Meriden.

Local companies, groups and individuals are encouraged to participate during our “Week of Action” initiative by donating emergency personal care items by dropping items off to United Way’s office to help the families our agencies serve. Drop off your donations to the office Monday-Friday between 9am-3pm OR call the office to set up a different time. Our goal is to collect at least 500 items. Can you help???
