Yesterday, CBC Development Manager Jennifer Cretella took a ride on Lenny & Joe's "Magic Carousel." It's magic because L&J's selects an organization to receive carousel fees collected during magic certain hours -- and yesterday that was Clifford Beers Clinic!

We are so grateful to both L&J's and all the wonderful carousel riders!! We are inspired by your kindness and pledge to use it to bring help and hope to the children and families we serve.

So many students who need this type of support will be so grateful when they get their stuffed school backpacks!!

THANK YOU to our friends at Yale Printing and Yale Beinecke Library, and special thanks to Mable Thorne who organized this suppy drive. Below are Eve Neuter and Monika Lehman from the library -- caught in the act of kindness as they drop off the yield from their drive! Again, THANKS!

Another drive, another batch of kindness!!

THANK YOU to Bankwell of Hamden & North Haven, and a special "shout out" to branch managers Leila Votto (Hamden) and Lisa Cole (North Haven) for making it happen!! The school supplies will go into backpacks and out to kids -- and that will help get them off to a great school year!

Pictured below are Bankwell employees near the area where supplies were collected. THANK YOU, BANKWELL!!
