ConnexCares is excited to announce its annual Holiday Give in support of Urban Community Alliance, a local New Haven nonprofit that helps to empower families of color and keep families together in the community. As the holiday season approaches, ConnexCares continues its commitment to the community by giving back and making an impact in the lives of those in need.

This year ConnexCares is collecting new and unwrapped toys, books, clothing, personal care items such as soap, shampoo, oral hygiene items, and more for ages 1 through 18, boys and girls. Cash donations are also being accepted at every Connex branch.
