Virtual Walk: October 18th - 31st


This holiday season the United Way of Greater Waterbury, in combination with our annual support of food pantries around Thanksgiving, will be having a virtual walk! The community is encouraged to walk with friends, family and neighbors* and will be provided with conversation starters to engage in meaningful dialogue on the walk together. 

Participants will be asked to donate a minimum of $10 and complete the walk anytime between October 18th-31st.
All proceeds will be given to local food banks to help those in need.
*Please abide by CDC recommended COVID-19 safety protocols

If you have any questions or would like more information please contact
Jessica Carlino at [email protected]
