Chrysalis Center is a private, non-profit, socially innovative, multiservice organization that serves individuals and their families living in the State of Connecticut. Chrysalis Center helps those living in poverty, veterans, men, women, children, and young adults who are struggling with mental health, addiction, HIV/AIDS, homelessness, and those returning from incarceration.

Children who live in our supportive housing sites and those whose families pick up food from Freshplace, our food pantry, or participate in other Chrysalis Center programs need your help. These children often have limited opportunities to engage in fun and learning activities like doing craft projects.

So, we are asking groups and individuals to help us by putting together craft kits for the children whose families we serve. Due to COVID and the children being unable to share supplies, each kit should be self-contained within a ziplock bag or other container. The kit should include everything that would be needed to do a craft project. Children in our programs may not have access to glue, crayons, etc. due to a lack of funds to purchase them, so those should be included if they are required for the craft. If there are pieces to be cut out, you can either pre-cut them, or provide a pair of small scissors. The crafts can be centered around a holiday or season, but also can be ones that can be used year round.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Sarah Mitchell at smitchell@chrysaliscenterct.org for more information. The kits would need to be mailed to or dropped off at Chrysalis Center, Inc. 255 Homestead Avenue, P.O. Box 320613, Hartford, CT 06132.

Thank you so much for considering this virtual opportunity!
