LOVE CT, a corporate citizenship partnership developed by CONNOISSEUR MEDIA/NEW HAVEN, CT stations WPLR, 95.9 THE FOX, WYBC and STAR 99.9, has helped raise $10,000 that will be donated to four area charities and help build a new roof for autism agency. ALLIED, along with ALBERTUS MAGNUS COLLEGE, HEALTHYCT and EASTER SEALS/GOODWILL, were 2014-15 partners in CONNOISSEUR's LOVE CT initiative.
The charities include CARDINAL SHEEHAN CENTER, HARMONY4KIDZ, MILFORD RAPE CRISIS CENTER and BLACK ROCK FARMERS MARKET, while THE PILOT HOUSE needs a new roof for a classroom that serves autistic children; JOHN WAGNER offered to personally provide the materials and labor needed.
“It was difficult to choose just five applicants to award the LOVE CT funds," CONNOISSEUR/NEW HAVEN GM KRISTIN OKESSON said. “Our partners and administrators feel that we have selected organizations that serve many, represent diverse needs, and have sustainable programing. LOVE CT reaches and connects with organizations throughout our state that do great work and deserve a moment in the spotlight. We are happy to provide the publicity with a positive public service campaign on our stations and the benefits of our partnerships.”
