Happy Campers at Room to Grow
July 2nd, 2018

NORWALK—This week marked the launch of Room to Grow Preschool’s Creative Adventures Camp. It is the first time that the Norwalk preschool has held a summer day camp program. During winter vacation, program director Nancy Owens piloted the camp to test the waters. Kids and parents alike felt the vacation camp was so beneficial that the decision was made to move forward this summer with a summer camp program. All Campers were provided with an official day camp t-shirt. Yesterday’s craft project (in photo) was Yarn Lanterns. Room to Grow is a program of Catholic Charities of Fairfield County. For more information on Creative Adventures Camp, contact Nancy Owens at 203.831.8200.

The Undies Project
June 13th, 2018

Did you know that underwear is the most under-donated, yet most needed clothing item? In order to tackle this challenge, Lucy Langley and Laura Delaflor launched a nonprofit focused specifically on providing underwear for those in need. This May, NCCenter was a lucky recipient of The Undies Project’s donation of 654 pairs of men’s underwear and 210 pairs of women’s underwear in mixed sizes. That’s over 800 pairs of underwear!

Leisa Hinds-Simpson of NCCenter helps a guest pick out the right size.

Many thanks to this incredible organization that understands NCCenter’s mission to promote human cleanliness through our shower and barber services programs. Being able to give our guests fresh, new underwear builds on our initiatives to promote dignity and self esteem.
