PLEASE help our partners at Foodshare!!!

Foodshare needs homemade masks!

The CDC is now recommending (but not requiring) masks to be worn in public... and I would like to be able to offer a homemade mask to our staff and volunteers who are out there every day feeding the public. If you are able to make a mask (or two... or ten...) please send them to: Foodshare, 450 Woodland Avenue, Bloomfield, CT 06002. You can either mail them or leave them in a bag at the front door.

PLEASE NOTE: we are only looking for HOMEMADE masks. Any and all purchased/manufactured/official medical masks must be given to a local hospital. (And if by chance we do receive any of these, they will be immediately donated.)

THANK YOU!

From Stephen Haynes, Program Director of our Working Man's Center

In January, friends here donated around the occasion of my birthday in support of training programs - Forklift and OSHA 10 Certification - at The Open Hearth Association. Together, we raised $2,500. Happy to share the news that, today, the check from Network for Good arrived.

Feeling thankful, today and everyday, for the compassion that is gathered and shared through community. Thank you, friends.
