CT Nonprofits Week I at State Capitol a Success!
HARTFORD - The Connecticut Association of Nonprofits
(CT Nonprofits), the largest membership organization in the state dedicated
exclusively to working with not-for-profit agencies, held its CT Nonprofits
Week I at the L.O.B. from February 18 through 21. This is the sixth year that
The Salvation Army has participated in the program, having attended with
several other nonprofits on Thursday, February 20.
This program provides 100 nonprofit organizations over the course of two,
week-long sessions, with the opportunity to collectively highlight the variety
of work that they perform to enhance the quality of life for all citizens in
Connecticut. The groups are presented with the opportunity to educate policy
makers and the public about the work of their organization and the important
impact that nonprofits have on their community.
This year, Salvation Army’s Waterbury Corps Officer Major Annette Lock
teamed up with members of the Southern New England Development Department to
get the Army’s message out to the legislative leaders. She commented,
"This is a great opportunity to meet these officials and thank them for their
support. I am always happy to have an opportunity to tell our state leaders
about our work and our mission. I want to thank CT Nonprofits for giving us
the opportunity to help get our message out."
