Sponsors needed for United Way campaign
Published 6:52 pm, Wednesday, August 4, 2010
The United Way of Western Connecticut is still in need of sponsors for its 19th annual Back to School Clothing Drive.
Donations will be accepted through next Friday, Aug. 13.
The program provides new school clothes for children living in New Milford, Kent, Washington, Roxbury, Sherman, Bridgewater and Warren.
The goal is for each child to receive two sets of clothing (pants and shirts), sneakers or shoes, a coat, socks, underwear, a backpack, school supplies and personal care items.
Sponsors may sign up to clothe an entire child, join a group of individuals sponsoring a child or make a donation toward the program.
Sponsors will receive a list of clothing sizes and specific items needed.
Clothing may be dropped off at Webster Bank at 19 Main St. in New Milford.
For more information, to become a sponsor or to set up a time to drop off items, call 860-354-8800.
