Covenant to Care for Children channels the generosity of caring and faithful people to advocate for, and provide direct assistance to Connecticut’s children who are neglected, abused and/or impoverished.
Covenant to Care for Children works to create a future where Connecticut’s children have caring families and safe places to live, and all people of faith demonstrate their own personal commitment to the welfare of children.
The winter holiday season is upon us and requests for our Connecticut children are flooding into the office of CCC. We are finding a particular need for new gifts appropriate for newborns to 2 years of age. Practical gifts for the little ones that can help their parents take care of their babies are best but it is important for small children to have stimulating development suitable activities. Please consider our lists of infant and toddler supplies found in the “Small Container/Shoe Box/Tote Bag Ideas” for ideas. For gift giving during this time of year we only use new items, though our closet always accepts excellent condition used items year round.
CCC is in desperate need of you help to complete all the miracles of the season we are called on to facilitate. The Alternative Gift Catalogue is a great way to help us work those miracles while also easing the pressure on you to come up with a great gift for your friends and family. Won’t you take a browse through our catalogue to learn how you can make the cold months warm for so many children?
The 2013 Alternative Gift Catalog has just arrived! Take a look.
The weather across Connecticut will soon turn chilly, but many children will not have winter coats to keep them warm. You can help by donating to CCC’s annual collection drive for new and very gently used winter coats for children ages four through 12. For teens, we find that they prefer to do their own purchasing using a gift card. Your donation will allow Connecticut children in need to receive the gift of warmth. School attendance often suffers during winter months due to inadequate clothing. Help CCC get children to school where they are safe and warm, and where they will receive the education to become productive citizens. Donated items may be dropped off at the Bloomfield office, or call us to arrange for pickup of twelve items or more. For the teens, hold a gift card drive for the purchase of winter outerwear. You may also send in cash donations by clicking the Donate button above.
