Leap of Kindness 2020
Join us in supporting our non-profit members for Leap of Kindness Days...
Leap of Kindness Day is a nationally recognized initiative falling every four years on February's leap day, that encourages people to spread kindness across their community. For the month of February, the CT River Valley Chamber will be turning the spotlight on those in need. Chamber members will partner with local non-profits to assist in highlighting how you can support our region’s non-profit organizations.
We're very excited about this initiative and hope you'll join us in raising awareness for all the great work our non-profits do!
