A recent study showed that North Canaan has the highest poverty rate in Litchfield county (12.7% verses the state average of 8.7%). To help the children of our community, the United Way of Northwest CT is conducting a "Back to School Clothes for Kids" campaign to provide new back to school clothes, sneakers, back packs and supplies. The goal is for every child to receive 2 new outfits, 3 pair of socks & underwear, a winter coat, sneakers, and back pack, along with school and toiletry supplies.
Remember when you were a child, how exciting it was to get new school clothes and fresh notebooks? Please consider making those memories come true for some of our local children. We will be collecting donations every Saturday at the Norfolk Farmers Market. You can help a child "dress for success" and get happily on the school bus this fall!
