HARTFORD, Conn. — We get flooded with requests for Giving Tuesday. So we are launching our Making an Impact: Holiday Gift Guide.
It’s a week-long tour of shops that employ/support people who face different challenges in life; think homelessness, recently incarcerated, blind, intellectually or physically challenged.
We're meeting with the employees, learning about their shop missions, exploring their products, and in some cases, seeing the craftsmanship at work.
The goal is to inspire our audience during the holiday shopping season while Making an ImpaCT!
Monday 11/28 ReRead Books/Holiday Wreaths, Cheshire – intellectual challenges
Tuesday 11/29 Opportunity Works, Vernon – physical and intellectual challenges
Wednesday 11/30 Fresh Start, Hartford – homelessness, recently incarcerated
Thursday, 12/1 Artisan Weaving Center, Hartford, blind, visually impaired, people ages 55 and up
Friday, 12/2 Blue Dragonfly, Windsor, intellectual challenges
