This Thursday, YEP will be collecting books that are appropriate for students in grades K-12. They will be donated to Irving School in Derby as part of their larger book drive efforts.
The books will help fill up the shelves of the school library as well as be handed out to the Student of the Month.
If you would like to donate books, please stop by during the YEPresent after hours networking event this Thursday at the Hilton Garden Inn in Shelton or contact us at YEP@greatervalleychamber.com.
YEP will once again be participating in the annual BHCare Bowl-2-Benefit. This year marks the 25th annual fundraising event.
From the BHCare website:
According to the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV), more than 20 persons lose their lives to domestic violence in the state of CT annually. Last year, CDVS provided free emergency safe shelter, 24-hour crisis, counseling, advocacy, support and other crucial services to over 9,000 battered women and their children. Decreases in state and federal funding, coupled with increases in demand for services, make fundraising events such as the Bowl-2-Benefit critical to sustaining services for those at risk and in need.
If you would like to donate to the cause, you can do so online by visiting FirstGiving - Bowl-2-Benefit
