Respond. Recover. Reimagine.
Dear Campus Colleagues,
Welcome to the webpage for all you need to know about this year’s Yale-United Way Campaign at West Campus! As President Salovey has said, in this turbulent period, many more families in New Haven and surrounding towns are experiencing hunger, homelessness, unemployment, and challenges to their mental and physical health. The United Way of Greater New Haven is our partner in meeting our neighbors’ immediate needs while also rebuilding stronger, more equitable communities. We know that this year is different. The needs of many of our neighbors are even more compelling.
It is going to take all of us to mitigate the impacts and recover as a community, and we hope everyone at Yale’s West Campus will join together to help out.
While we are unable to gather in person, this year our team of organizers have designed a host of fun virtual events for the West Campus community to enjoy, and an opportunity for you to donate needed items right from your desks!
Thank you for your support!
