Valley Community Foundation Celebrates Hope and Resilience
Annual reception and Report honor the hope and inspiration found throughout the lower Naugatuck Valley in 2020
The Valley Community Foundation's (VCF) annual reception in June and 2020 Annual Report, entitled “A Year of Resilience,” honored the hope and inspiration found throughout the lower Naugatuck Valley in 2020.
Former Chair Don Smith joined current Chair Jack Walsh and CEO Sharon Closius in thanking residents for the “shining light of hope, the foundational presence of community.” A special montage of photos submitted by residents was a highlight.
Closius outlined VCF’s partnership in Stepping Forward, the commitment to address the impact of COVID-19 and to advance racial equity.
Also acknowledged was the $1.9 M made in grants and the 11 new funds established in 2020. Learn more at valleyfoundation.org.
