West Hartford's Cookin' Up Something New in 2021
For a second year in a row we were unable to hold our traditional fundraiser, West Hartford's Cookin' but we forged ahead with our fundraising with a new concept, West Hartford's Cookin' Up Something New! Many thanks to all who supported our fundraiser and to all the in-kind donors that contributed to the 110 curated gift bags that donors of $100 or more received.
Funds raised from West Hartford's Cookin' Up Something New directly supported:
- $20,000 award to the Department of Equity Advancement to support equity and anti-racism education.
- $32,837 award to 28 teacher grants for a special grant cycle to provide support during these difficult times.
