- Travelers Championship Birdies for Charity program
We are excited to announce our 2017 partnership with the Travelers Championship Birdies for Charity program, a unique fundraising program to get excited about!
Birdies for Charity is a pledge-based fundraising program based on the number of birdies made by the PGA TOUR professionals during the Travelers Championship. For example, a $0.02 pledge would equal a $36.00 donation if 1,800 birdies are made. You can make a flat-rate donation of at least $10.00, too! The Travelers Championship will donate 100% of the proceeds from your donation to Covenant to Care for Children.
Your donation can help us receive extra funds too! Each organization that raises money through the Birdies for Charity program will receive a 15% bonus on top of the pledges collected.
In our continued effort to mobilize and channel 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 at-risk, we hope you will join us as we raise funds through the Birdies for Charity program. For 2017, our goal is to raise $2,500; these funds will help provide tangible goods to abused and/or neglected children in Connecticut. Please help us fulfill our mission by donating through the Birdies for Charity program today.
Thank You for your continued support.
- Alternative Gift Catalog
Take a look at our Alternative Gift Catalog
Faith-based or community organizations agree to covenant in which they partner with a particular social worker in Connecticut to, as far as is possible, provide for the necessary and special items needed for all of the children in that social worker’s caseload. This augments the provisions of the State, often assuring greater stability in the life of a child.
Critical Goods is our response to the needs of families who are at-risk of losing their children, or who are being reunified with their children and must have certain material goods before that can happen: beds, cribs, and household items.
We assist children and youth in their development and growth by helping them overcome the challenges of poverty and emotional distress. Donations of emergency and non-emergency goods are collected and delivered to families in an effort to foster safe and nurturing home environments for the children.
Crisis Food Support is a program for delivery of staples and fresh food for one-time emergencies to families with children in the greater Hartford and greater New Britain regions.
This program accepts donor designated funds for the special needs of children. Social workers can request these funds to meet needs, which are not met by State Government departments, other agencies, or our other CCC programs. Examples are camp experiences, haircuts, lessons, tutoring, school uniform and supplies, or other aids.
Children create art masks, to express a wide range of emotions and help them work through conflicts and traumas. There is an array of outcomes with the children's masks ranging from the whimsical to the evocative. While expressing themselves in this visual way, the children gain a sense of empowerment that can help them develop a positive self-image and improve their self-esteem.
Keep up with our advocacy efforts.
