Eric Galvin to Lead 2019 United Way Community Campaign
Eric Galvin has been named Chair of United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut’s 2019 Community Campaign. Galvin is President of ConnectiCare, with more than 20 years of experience in the health care industry. In his new role as Chair, he’ll lead the charge to engage and bring together people and resources committed to the well-being of children and families in our community, while providing opportunities for people to give resources and time to the causes they care about most.
Coming Soon: United Way Donor Advised Fund
Our United Way is pleased to announce the establishment of a donor advised fund. Much like a charitable savings account, United Way’s Donor Advised Fund makes giving to the causes you care about simpler than ever before. It’s easy-to-establish, flexible and a tax effective way to support United Way and other charities. If you’re interested in starting a donor advised fund or would like more information, please contact Lisa Cretella, Director of Leadership Giving and Affinity Groups, United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Volunteer Spotlight: The Hartford
The Hartford partners with United Way annually to commemorate September 11th, the National Day of Service and Remembrance. This year, 400 employees made 400 Playcation Kits. The kits are filled with supplies for children to build their critical thinking through creative play on days when school is not in session. Completed kits were given to students in United Way-supported early childhood programs. Thank you, employees of The Hartford, foruniting to do something big for local children.
