Leadership Greater Hartford's Summer Nexus Students Raise Over $1000!

Students participating in Summer Nexus, a program of our sponsor agency Leadership Greater Hartford, raised $1,001.97 during their week of the program. The students coordinated a Family Fun Day at the Mandell Jewish Community Center including face painting, water games, a bounce house and much more. 

While the event itself was not well attended, the students learned a lot during their experience and were proud of themselves for raising such a large amount. One of the mothers who attended for the day noted that August 15th is likely the worst week to do an event because everyone is on vacation right before school starts. In addition to the money raised, the students got nearly $300 of items donated to coordinate all of the games and prizes for the day.
