CRY Connecticut Action Center
The Connecticut Action Center (Conn AC) is committed to care for the rights and happiness of children with an aim to raise funds and spread awareness about CRY in Connecticut.
Since its inception in 2007, we have been successful in raising more than $30,000 and have doubled our active volunteer and donor base. In our effort to raise funds, we have organized events ranging from ‘Holi’ party and 3K Walk to the big budget, ‘Indian Ocean’ Concert. and Bollywood Night with a NYC DJ. Seeing the roaring support of people, we are positive that our little Connecticut, “The Land of Steady Habits” will keep contributing towards our cause.
We invite high school volunteers, college students, professionals, retirees, homemakers and others to join hands for a common cause. Lets make this world a better future together! Please feel free to get in touch with us to find out different ways in which you can “Stand Up For Child Rights” in the true sense.
