UWWC's Annual Events 

Be sure to check the calendar for UWWC's annual events. Below you will find a description of the events.

Day of Caring

Held every fall, Day of Caring is a day dedicated to volunteering. Organized by United Way of Windham County, volunteers spread out across Windham County to provide skills, labor, and energy to different program sites. This annual day of service mobilizes the caring power of the community to provide assistance to Windham County’s nonprofit organizations, which all do so much every day to help the residents of our county.

Dental Day 

Dental Care Day is part of UWWC's Windham County Smiles program. This event is held in the spring and provides participants with free services such as cleanings, fillings, extractions, x-rays, and saving damaged teeth. Through this initiative, UWWC convenes a team of local care providers who volunteer their time and office space in order to fulfill the basic human needs of neighbors in our community. The event helps residents overcome barriers of access and affordability to obtaining baseline dental care.

 

Handbags for HOPE

Handbags for HOPE is an annual fundraiser that benefits UWWC's Fund for Quality Early Education. Our partner in this work is Windham Child Care Association, who serves as the fiscal agent and administrator of the funds. Through the Fund, early educators can apply for grants to assist them in professional development, such as paying for college courses, conferences and workshops, or mentoring. They can also access funds for program enrichment, including special events, materials, and activities.
