United Way seeks clothing sponsors

The United Way of Western Connecticut, Inc., is seeking sponsors for its 18th annual Back to School Clothes for Kids campaign.

The goal is to provide a new wardrobe for 210 children in need who live in the Greater New Milford area.

To date, only half of the children have sponsors.

Program organizers would like to provide each child with two outfits (slacks/shirt/dress), three sets of underwear, socks, underwear, one pair of sneakers or shoes, one winter coat, one backpack with school supplies and personal care grooming items.

Sponsors may sign up to provide a complete outfit for a child, or to sponsor part of an outfit, or make a contribution toward the clothing of a child.

Monetary donations are also accepted and may be mailed to United Way of Western Connecticut, Back to School Clothes for Kids, P.O. Box 29, New Milford, CT 06776.
