The Connection for Women and Families has announced its 2014 Annual Giving Campaign! Members and friends are asked to support the Community Service and Scholarship Fund, which enables children, adults and seniors to participate in educational, recreational, fitness and social service programs, regardless of their economic circumstance.

The Connection for Women and Families is a nonprofit organization in Summit that prides itself on being a community staple through its variety of programs that meet the needs of different constituencies and age groups. The Connection is a place where everyone can participate and feel welcome.

“Every child in our community deserves to spend their afterschool hours in a safe and engaging environment. Every child with special needs deserves to learn to swim, play basketball or spend time socializing with her peers. Every newcomer to our country deserves to improve his English to become more self-sufficient and engaged in our community.  Every woman recovering from cancer deserves to receive the resources and support needed in her journey toward healing” said Associate Executive Director, Jayne Graepel.

 “When you support The Connection’s Community Service and Scholarship Fund, you help us ensure that deserving children and adults have the chance to participate here. Together we work with friends like you to make certain that everyone, regardless of age, ability or economic circumstance can participate and feel welcome here. We are asking for your help so that we can continue to provide vital services to those in our community who are often overlooked.”

Now, more than ever, the support of the community changes lives! By making a donation to The Community Service and Scholarship Fund, donors can support a number of programs and individuals who are often not reached by other organizations. Donations help give: 240 children a safe, nurturing environment in the After School Enrichment Program, 200 children and adults with special needs a place to learn skills, make friends and gain a sense of belonging in social and recreational programs, and 80 ESL students from 20 countries around the world language skills, support services and self-sufficiency. Donations help 500 women with breast and gynecological cancer receive support, education and wellness services through Pathways and 500 individuals with financial needs receive over $270,000 in scholarship assistance to participate in programs at The Connection.

Your tax-deductible contribution provides direct and critical support for these vital community services right here in our community.
