Chapter-Wide Day of Service Projects

As a result of COVID-19, 1 in 4 families are struggling to put food on the table. Lack of proper food and nutrition results in conditions such as health issues, developmental impairments, and social and behavioral issues.

The Greater Hartford Chapter donates regularly to Hands on Hartford, a social service nonprofit organization that serves some of Connecticut's most economically challenged residents in the areas of food, housing, and health.
