Back-to-school program helps 121 children

United Way of Western Connecticut wrapped up this year’s Back-To-School Program in Stamford, which served 121 children. 

Students attending Springdale and Julia A. Stark elementary schools whose families met income limits were the beneficiaries. They received school supplies, sneakers, underwear, socks and other clothing including a winter jacket. The total cost of the items distributed was $30,250.  

This program is one of United Way’s signature initiatives that helps children from ALICE households (asset limited, income constrained, employed) and alleviates a very real strain for families living paycheck to paycheck.

This year’s sponsors included: Allegis Global Solutions; The Ashforth Co.; Barnum Wealth Management; Cotiviti; Day Pitney; Deloitte; First Bank of Greenwich; Granoff Architects; Greenwich Associates; Heidmar; Janus Henderson; NBC Universal; Nestle Waters; O’Connor Davies; Patriot Bank; Philips Consumer Lifestyle; Pitney Bowes; Shipman & Goodwin; Thomson Reuters; and U.S. Trust.
