For my birthday this year, I am asking friends and family to help me celebrate by making a gift to United Way of Greater New Haven in honor of my big day!  

I have been thinking about my blessings, and I want to give up presents this year and take the opportunity to do something good for those who can use a hand up.

Let's make a difference for our neighbors together!

From cradle to career, we help kids experience lifelong success. That means helping them get a strong start, continuing to spark their curiosity and making sure teachers, caregivers and parents can better support children’s healthy growth and development. When all kids have access to quality education they have brighter futures and help make our community stronger.

Together, we will:

  • Nurture children and youth through the ongoing upheaval of the pandemic.
  • Create stronger social-emotional connections between children and their caregivers through training and supports.
  • Provide thousands of early learners with books, supplies and academic supports.
  • Expand programs for thousands of school-age youths to participate in summer enrichment activities.

At United Way of Greater New Haven, we make sure all individuals and families have this chance through a variety of programs and strategies.

Together, we will:

  • Deliver continued financial support and resources to people who lost jobs and income due to the pandemic.
  • Provide cash support to benefit more our neighbors so they can meet their needs with flexibility and dignity.
  • Help hundreds of households access free tax preparation services, putting millions of dollars back into their pockets through refunds.

United Way meets basic needs by providing families and individuals with healthy food, safe housing, and supplies to protect their health.

Together, we will:

  • Give dozens of families a new start with Welcome Home kits.
  • House hundreds of families as we recover from the pandemic.
  • Nourish community members with healthy food and groceries

Friends and colleagues - For my birthday this year, I am asking friends and family to help me celebrate by making a gift to United Way of Greater New Haven (UWGNH) in honor of my big day! I'm a longtime UWGNH supporter and even a Yale champion on their past posters. Recently, I've been active with Women United of UWGNH, which helps provide secure jobs, basic needs, and safe homes for women and their families, thru volunteer service, discussion, and fund raising. It's a great group, so I hope you'll join me in supporting this important work. Let's make a difference for our neighbors together! *Monetary donations if you like, and I also encourage you to donate your time and energy with WU in CT, or in a United Way or other volunteer group in your area. Thanks for all your good wishes and health and happiness to us all in the coming year. Maybe even a bit of travel, too. Fondly, Lisa Brandes 60, retired and still planning stuff and making trouble
