Sponsors Needed for Tent City 2010 - Benefiting women, children and families in shelters in New Haven

11/18/2010 - 6:00pm - 10:00pm

Every woman, child or family that has lost a home or needed shelter has a story to tell and this year we want to make sure their stories are heard. On Thursday, November 18, 2010 from 6pm-10pm, the City of New Haven’s Community Services Administration in partnership with New Haven agencies will be hosting its annual homeless awareness campaign and fundraiser, Tent City on the Green, to benefit the increasing number of women, youth and families requiring shelter.

Area organizations, groups and city departments are being asked to support the cause by raising money to pitch a tent on the green. Each group is being asked to raise money to sponsor a tent. The goal is to have at least 25 tents pitched with a fundraising goal of $1,000 or more for each tent, with recognition of your donation. However, donations of any amount are welcome. A $250 donation will provide a sign with your name or group's name placed on the Green with recognition of your donation. In addition, the CT Foodbank will also be on site to receive non-perishable food item donations as part of the event.

You can donate online (see above) or write a check to "United Way" with “Tent City 2010” written in the memo line of the check. Checks should be mailed to Dr. Chisara N. Asomugha, Community Services Administrator, City Hall, 165 Church Street, New Haven, CT 06510. No cash will be exchanged on the Green; however, a city employee will accept donations in the atrium of City Hall that evening.

Food and entertainment will be provided throughout the evening.

“The power to end homelessness is within our city halls, places of worship, and community organizations. To end homelessness we must mobilize the power.”

Combatting a Water Crisis with Entrepreneurship, and Heart

Jonathan Quarles is a Flint, MI small business owner who received a $10,000 grant from LISC and Verizon to help weather the pandemic's economic crisis. His business is a story worth telling: Quarles harvests and distributes clean water from the atmosphere, creating jobs, opportunity and "empowering the city that raised me" in the bargain.

In Pursuit of a Shared Humanity

LISC stands in unity with the protests that are sweeping our country, and their core message—that every life is sacred, says Maurice A. Jones, LISC’s president and CEO, in a video message. We are committed, he affirms, to continuing the work to dismantle structural racism and create an equitable America for all.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.
