Chapter-Wide Day of Service Projects
As a result of COVID-19, 1 in 4 families is struggling to put food on the table. Lack of proper food and nutrition results in health, developmental impairments, and social and behavioral issues.
The Greater Hartford Chapter regularly donates to Hands on Hartford, a social service nonprofit organization that serves some of Connecticut's most economically challenged residents in food, housing, and health.
