We want to thank all of you who took part in our first ever CTCPA Day of Giving!
Whether you donated to Connecticut Foodshare online, shipped toys to us for Connecticut Children's Medical Center, or drove to our office yesterday with cars packed with toys and canned goods and stood outside chatting with us, we couldn't be more thrilled with the outpouring of generosity from our members. Each and every year, you continue to show up and give, and we appreciate it.
Initially, we set a goal of $1,000 for Foodshare. You reached that goal so fast, we upped the ante... and you hit that, too.
As of publication, we have donated $4,743 to Connecticut Foodshare, $2,863 to Connecticut Children's Medical Center, and literally hundreds of toys and nonperishable items. (The link to donate to Connecticut Foodshare is still live, if you missed out - it's not too late!)
That's more than 11,800 meals that Connecticut Foodshare will be able to provide across our state because of you, and countless smiles for kids and families that are spending the holidays in the hospital.
A camera man from WFSB was able to join us, and we made the news! You can see the WFSB coverage and all of the photos below.
