    They are many disadvantaged students in our communities that can benefit from your generosity. For thousands of students, basic school supplies are so necessary, and sometimes very hard to afford.  Join us to make a difference for children and classrooms from kindergarten through high school!  

    As part of this great initiative, our partners from Raymour & Flanigan will be hosting a one-day event at their Manchester and Newington stores in CT on Saturday, July 27th from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. During this free event, they will be offering free food, music, face painting, and much more.

    Cash donations will be accepted during the event to go towards buying more supplies.

    Come with your family to celebrate with us and be part of this great event. NBC CT and Telemundo CT will be hosting talent appearances and handing out swag to the attendees.

    Do not miss out this opportunity to be part of making a difference and connecting with your local communities.
