April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Families Network of Western Connecticut is hosting public awareness events and educational activities. Executive Director Susan Giglio says the non-profit is hosting a fundraising event Thursday so that services can continue to be provided to families in the Greater Danbury region at no cost.
Giglio says the fundraising event is to support abuse prevention and health programs and their expansion into early literacy and school readiness.
Funds raised at this event will help Families Network to expand their services to families in the greater Danbury area. The services are currently provided at no cost to families in Bethel, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Danbury, New Fairfield, New Milford, Newtown, Bedding, Ridgefield, and Sherman.
The Families Network luncheon Thursday will be held at the Matrix Center in Danbury from 11:30am to 2pm. Call 203-791-8773 for more info or visit them on the web at www.fnwc.org. There is a suggested $35 donation.
