On October 13th, 2020, Colchester Cares members joined together virtually to discuss various needs in the town of Colchester. The group had $1,600 total to give, and decided to split the money to give to the following causes:
1. Colchester Rotary Club: Our donation is helping fund the Rotary's Thanksgiving Basket initiative, which distributes 150+ fully stocked Thanksgiving dinners to Colchester families in need.
2. Youth and Social Services Town of Colchester: YSS is using our group's donation to support families who are in need during the pandemic.
3.Colchester Lions Club: Our donation is helping fund the Lions Club Holiday Basket initiative, which distributes 150+ dinners to Colchester families in need this December.
Thank you to all Colchester Cares members for supporting these organizations, who in turn do amazing things for our town. COVID-19 has presented many challenges to these organizations, we are so glad we can help support their initiatives.
We're a group dedicated to combining resources and giving back to the Colchester, CT community. Refer to this page for the recipients of Colchester Cares donations every quarter.
