Week of Caring 2023

Volunteers ready to serve meals at Dinner for a Dollar

This year during Week of Caring, we invite you to participate in an array of volunteer events themed around United Way's impact area! Join us as we help to beautify a women's center in Guilford, build a love of reading with students in Branford, increase access to healthy and fresh fruits and veggies in New Haven, and serve meals to families and individuals in Hamden!

By volunteering, you can help make meaningful changes and close gaps so that every member of our community can thrive.
