Middlesex United Way Supports SSKP

The Middlesex United Way has generously provided a $7,500 grant to Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries to purchase food for distribution to local families in need through our Old Saybrook, Westbrook and Clinton Pantries. Many households along the shoreline in Middlesex County experience food insecurity as they struggle with the rising costs of groceries, fuel, housing, and utilities. This funding for our food pantries reflects the MUW's continued focus on supporting basic needs that are critically needed in Middlesex County. SSKP is truly grateful for the continued support of the Middlesex United Way. To learn more about their positive impact in areas of education, health, housing and financial stability, visit
