Girl Within luncheon raises $170K

Nearly 500 women and men came together at The Village's 17th annual Girl Within Luncheon on Dec. 1 at the Connecticut Convention Center, raising more than $170,000 to support programs for at-risk girls and young women in the Greater Hartford area. Shown above (from left to right) are: Galo Rodriguez, president and CEO of The Village for Families & Children; Alana Farnsworth, guest speaker; Jeanmarie Cooper, member of The Village's board and event chair; Regina Louise, author and keynote speaker; Irene O'Connor, anchor of Eyewitness News This Morning on WFSB-TV, Ch. 3 and event emcee; Francine Christiansen, 2017 Woman of the Year; and Sarah Morin from The Hartford, presenting sponsor.

American Eagle Financial Credit Union recently donated $5,000 to the Community Renewal Team of Hartford and Middlesex counties to help veterans in the local area. Members of American Eagle FCU were encouraged to use their debit cards on Veteran's Day with 10 cents on every purchase made donated to CRT.

The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving awarded a two-year, $440,000 grant to the Hartford Neighborhood Development Support Collaborative to help its mission to revitalize the community for Hartford residents. The Hartford Neighborhood Development Support Collaborative provides operating support for the Community Development Corp. and Northside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance, which work in the Asylum Hill neighborhood to rehabilitate properties and create affordable housing.
