Back-to-School Supply Drive

During the month of July, The United Way of Milford & our local Salvation Army chapter will be collecting school supplies to ensure all students go to school with the tools needed to learn. When a family is living paycheck to paycheck, children learn to do what they have to even if that means returning to school without the supplies they need to succeed. This year we are looking for your help to change this. We are looking to get the community involved in supporting our mission “Together We Help People”. It is exciting for all of us who live and work in a community to be a part of such a generous spirit of giving back.

It is not just about paper, pens, or binders. It’s about giving the gift of opportunity in school and life that many children will not receive otherwise. Can we count you in?

All donations can be dropped off at United Way of Milford 20 Evergreen Avenue Milford, CT 06460.
