Over the past year during the Coronavirus pandemic, Hartford-based Travelers has been donating hot lunches to CRT and other local charities.

CRT ensures these meals are then delivered to clients within its programs.

The Travelers donates 130 meals each weekday. To date, Travelers has provided more than 32,000 meals to CRT clients.  Even better, the partnership will continue through the end of June 2021.

Ashley Afonso from Fox 61 shared this wonderful news with their viewers:

Seven-year old Oscar started an organization to give back to others in need here in Connecticut. Specifically, he has been raising money to donate PPE to those that need these valuable supplies. On Wednesday, a large donation that he sent was given to the residents at CRT’s East Hartford Family Shelter.

Oscar calls his organization “Superheroes Are Found Everywhere” or “SAFE” for short, and he is truly a superhero to CRT!

Leslie Mayes from NBC Connecticut shared the story of this true act of kindness.

More details can be found in this story in the Hartford Courant.

Today marks “Giving Tuesday” and CRT invites donors to do all they can to help one person in need to stay healthy and safe this holiday season. Thanks to an anonymous donor, each donation this month will be matched dollar for dollar!

Jenn Bernstein from Fox 61 News shared the story with their viewers.
