Hartford’s Common Ground Program

Leadership Greater Hartford’s Common Ground program successfully responded to a request for help from the Covenant to Care for Children’s Critical Goods Program and increased the quantity and efficiency of clothing provided to children in need. The Common Ground class of 35 teens, of diverse backgrounds and from both urban and suburban schools, raised over $1300 for CCC. Organizing various activities in their home schools to raise the needed funds, they purchased 90 bins, 15 shelving units, 3 six-foot folding tables, and contributed $300 in cash. In one Sunday afternoon they assembled the shelves, sorted, folded and organized the clothes into the neatly labeled bins, and redesigned the layout and space. This effort physically expanded the closet by 1400 square feet – the size of an additional office! Read more…
