THE CARVER CENTER (Norwalk)
The Carver Center helps children reach their greatest potential by providing educational, social, and recreational programs in a positive, safe and fun environment.
The Carver Center serves at-risk children in grades K-12 and their families. Its mission is to build lifetime achievers by focusing on academic achievement, a key to breaking the cycle of poverty. Last year, 100% of Carver’s graduates attended college. Check out their website at www.carvercenterct.org.
In addition to financial support, NPC members support Carver Center by volunteering to serve
- Career Fair for Middle and High School students (annual event held in January): Some volunteers help organize the event. Other volunteers explain their careers and answer student’s questions about their careers.
- Mother and Others Dinner (annual event held in May): Volunteers help organize and/or serve at this celebration of Carver families.
- Thanksgiving Food Drive (annual event held in November): Provide the gift of a Thanksgiving Meal to one of 200+ deserving Norwalk Families by helping organize or participate in the annual Food Drive.
