Congresswoman to participate in Day of Kindness activities

5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty will be traveling across the region to recognize and celebrate a Day of Kindness by participating in acts of service.  It's part of a week-long campaign to promote community service in recognition of the fourth anniversary of the shootings at Sandy Hook School.


Esty will start the day by hosting a press conference with Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, along with representatives of the Newtown Action Alliance.  They are urging residents to engage in service in their own communities.  Esty, Blumenthal, and Murphy will then read to a classroom of preschoolers at the YWCA in New Britain. The books will have themes that touch upon the ideas of kindness and acceptance.


Esty will then visit Tunxis Community College Veterans Oasis, where she will meet with student veterans. Final exams began yesterday, and Esty will be bringing by snacks and drinks for the veterans who are in need of study snack and break.


Later in the day, Esty will participate in the Torrington Chore Program for the Elderly. This housekeeping service is offered to low-income, elderly residents in Torrington and Harwinton. Through the assistance of a chore worker, the program has been successful in enabling older residents to remain in their home and age in place.


Esty will conclude her day of service at Saint Vincent dePaul Homeless Shelter in Waterbury, where she will help clean and prepare the dining hall for the meal. She will also have the opportunity to serve dinner to neighbors who rely on the shelter’s services.
