The Community Outreach Committee provides the opportunity for members to volunteer and make a difference in the local area. For the past seven years, the committee has facilitated the “Adopt-a-School” program with Hallen Elementary School in Bridgeport. Each summer, the committee has a drive to raise money to buy “Weekly Readers” for the students. For the past three years, we have been able to provide all of the students in the school with Weekly Readers. Our members also serve as mentors, reading and math tutors and classroom readers at the school. Each winter, members collect toys for the local Toys For Tots campaign, along with gift cards for the Center for Family Justice, while raising money for the Salvation Army. Some of the committee’s other projects include preparing and serving lunch for over 200 people at the St. Thomas Merton House in Bridgeport, sponsoring the Bridgeport Public Schools’ Debate League, collecting books, band-aids and DVDS for the Bridgeport Hospital Pediatrics Floor, and having a sundry drive for a convalescent home in Bridgeport. The Committee is always looking for new ideas and projects so feel free to contact Kathleen M. Dunn at firstname.lastname@example.org
