Your generosity can make the holidays brighter for many who are struggling during these unprecedented times.
We are partnering with Comcast, Christmas Wish CT, Lite 100.5 WRCH, Foodshare, Connecticut Food Bank, Connecticut Children’s Foundation, American Red Cross of Connecticut and Hartford Yard Goats for the Season of Giving!
Join us to help to grant Christmas wishes for Connecticut kids and families, supply food to the hungry or give the gift of life by donating blood! Here is how:
Support American Red Cross of Connecticut:
The need for blood donations is always constant, but amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the need is critical. NBC and Telemundo Connecticut will be partnering with the American Red Cross and Hartford Yard Goats for a two-day New Year's blood drive on Wednesday, January 6 and Thursday, January 7. The blood drive will take place each day at Dunkin Donuts Park in Hartford and the West Hartford Town Hall.
To help maintain social distancing, appointments are required.
HELP SUPPLY CLOTHING AND GIFTS FOR CONNECTICUT CHILDREN AND FAMILIES IN NEED
Support Christmas Wish CT:
Christmas Wish CT is a local 501-C3 charity founded by Mike Stacy from the Lite 100.5 WRCH morning show “Allan, Mike & Mary." One hundred percent of donations to Christmas Wish CT help grant the wishes of families in local homeless and domestic violence shelters as well as those who are associated with after school programs and/or generations housing. Wishes include toys for children, warm clothing and food.
Support Connecticut Children's Foundation:
Help make the holiday season brighter for Connecticut Children’s patients and their families! In-person toy donations are on hold due to COVID-19 precautions, but you can spread joy by donating to fund the purchase of a toy. Funds will help Child & Family Support Services stock playrooms, purchase unique items for patients and provide support to families.
Support the United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut:
Your support will provide access to basic needs for local children, adults, and families. Donated funds will go towards programs that provide clothing, food, shelter and emergency assistance to those in need in the Greater Hartford area.
HELP SUPPLY FOOD FOR THOSE HUNGRY ACROSS CONNECTICUT
Support the Connecticut Food Bank:
The Connecticut Food Bank serves Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London, and Windham counties. Your monetary gift will go to work immediately help provide quality, nutritious food to hungry neighbors in these communities.
Foodshare serves Hartford and Tolland counties. Your monetary gift will ensure neighbors will have access healthy food today.
