West Haven Food Pantry Fundraiser by UNewHaven MAC

The University of New Haven Mayor’s Advisory Commission is a student-led group whose primary mission is to strengthen the relationship between the West Haven and the University of New Haven communities. To this end, MAC usually organizes WestFest to raise funds for the West Haven Emergency Assistance Taskforce. Unfortunately, COVID-19 forced us to cancel WestFest this year. However, in its place, MAC is holding this GoFundMe fundraiser to raise money for WHEAT and help support our cherished West Haven community.

WHEAT is a private, nonprofit 501c3 organization established to meet the emergency needs of the West Haven community in three general areas:     1.  The basic necessities of life to help improve self-sufficiency, sustainability and quality of life.    2.  Referral services    3. Advocacy with and on behalf of those in need. Over the past two years, WHEAT has expanded outreach to provide the basic necessities of life, now feeding 5,000 households, among them 1,000 children.  

Please join us in helping our community in this time of need by donating any amount you can.
