Day of Caring
Free Tax Preparation (VITA & MyFreeTaxes.com)
When the Christmas Stocking retired in 2015, United Way of Windham County agreed to continue the program. Rebranded as "Kids in Coats," this fund relies on community donations to provide coats and winter gear to children in need. The Kids in Coats system uses vouchers to provide families funds to shop at local stores. This system aligns with our goal to provide choice to participants and to keep money local!
Vermont 2-1-1 is a program of United Ways of Vermont, funded in part by United Way of Windham County. The mission of Vermont 2-1-1 is to maintain a database of services and resources for every region in the state and to direct people to the right services or resources to help meet their need or answer their question. When you dial 2-1-1, you speak with a real person who listens to you describe your challenge and helps you connect to the services that can ultimately resolve the problem. The Vermont 2-1-1 database has information on more than 12,000 different programs and services across the state and is updated at least annually so the information is accurate when referrals are made.
