"Promoting love, community and connection for every child and family."
AGP volunteer, friend and champion Alice Caron collected 16 backpacks filled with supplies on two weeks notice.
Together with her family and friends, she pounded the pavement to organize back to school gifts for children for New Britain Public Schools.
Alice, your work is not in vain. We also thank AGP volunteers who will be at our four partner schools today welcoming the children back at the Consolidated School District of New Britain !
Love wins. It also saves lives.

Welcome to #Muzzbuzz Monday and happy first day of school to my New Britain colleagues and anyone else ending their summer today.
I have a strong mixture of emotions starting today. I'm anxious and excited to meet my new class and to get started with them. However, a piece of me is sad because starting this year means last school year is officially "over," and those kids move on to 6th grade.
As we start today, please remember to be patient, be kind, and be strong. This year may not go as planned and some days may be tough. Every child needs and deserves our attention and compassion. You never know when a child will need just a high five or smile.
Good luck with this school year to parents, students, and teachers. As this year kicks off, in the words of my 4 year old (with some help from Nelba), some days you will get pooped on but you can still have fun!
Love wins and it saves lives.

Welcome to #Soulfulsunday at #TheAnaGraceProject!
Yesterday I went to the wedding of a beautiful friend; it was on the most perfect property in Killingworth CT, and it was absolutely beautiful. I don't always cry at weddings because I don't always feel the love so powerfully. Yesterday I cried.
The bride and groom decided that rather than buying guests favors that they would donate the money that would have spent to The Ana Grace Project. The bride is a cancer survivor, a therapist for the children and families in New Britain, and an all around amazing, loving and compassionate person! Together, she and her new husband exude love in all they do for others.
I was asked to share with the 200+ guests about The Ana Grace Project and the Partner Schools Initiative. The bride then shared with the group: had it not been for the connection with two special women while she was sick she doubted she would have survived the diagnosis, treatment and recovery from Non Hodgkins Lymphoma.
It was my honor to share about The Ana Grace Project in this way with folks who create opportunities for Love to Win every day in their connections with others.
#lovewins, it saves lives.
