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."
