CTCPA Day of Giving


Tuesday, November 30, 2021 • CTCPA Office, Rocky Hill and Online

WFSB will be sending a crew to the Day of Giving! Please join us between 9:15-9:30 to be part of the coverage. 

We've just received the exciting news that WFSB plans to send a crew to cover the Day of Giving between 9:15-9:30 on November 30. We'd love to have as many people and donations here as possible to showcase our members and their generosity. (Remember, things can and do change quickly in the news world, so if there's a breaking story the crew might need to cancel, but as of right now, we are on!) Please plan to join us if you can.

Join us as we come together to support our community. 

Bring your donations, network, and take a festive photo at our Day of Giving social and collection drive at the CTCPA office in Rocky Hill on Tuesday, November 30 (#GivingTuesday!) from 8 to 10:30 a.m. 

Come enjoy your complimentary morning coffee or hot cocoa, seasonal treats, and catch up with fellow members, CTCPA staff, and Executive Director Bonnie Stewart at the CTCPA office (716 Brook Street, Rocky Hill, CT 06067). No need to pre-register; the more, the merrier! 

I'll be there on Nov. 30! What can I bring?
