Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 26th annual Men Who Cook virtual fundraiser on October 25, 2020. Together, we helped ensure that women and families will have the support and resources they need to take back their lives.
If you could not join us for the event, please click on the following video to hear the inspiring stories that were shared from women and families served by the Center and a message from our keynote speaker, UConn women's basketball coach, Geno Auriemma.
Since March we served over 300 families and gave over $125,000 in assistance to those impacted by Covid-19 on the Shoreline. People in our community are struggling with the financial instability the pandemic has caused their families. It is important for us to come together as a community to provide support to families choosing between rent and food, energy bills or medications, child care or a job.
We need your support to make it possible!
The pandemic has had a devastating financial impact on small businesses and neighbors. Thank you to everyone who purchased a Men Who Cook ticket that included a to-go dinner from one of our nine partner restaurants. A portion of each dinner ticket that was sold will be donated to the restaurant you chose for your Men Who Cook "to-go" dinner.
