Seniors Job Bank of Greater Hartford
Seniors Job Bank in West Hartford is a nonprofit organization created in 1974, dedicated to helping people over the age of 50 find part-time work in the West Hartford community and surrounding towns. The organization connects jobseekers with part-time job opportunities in businesses, municipalities, and nonprofits as well as per diem work with individuals.
"American Eagle's donation is especially welcome now, as the COVID-19 virus crisis has made fundraising even more challenging than it usually is. The money will help us continue to connect folks over 50 seeking work with businesses and households that have work to be done," said Bernie Weiss, president, Seniors Job Bank of Greater Hartford.
Quinnipiac University Dance Marathon Program (QTHON)
QTHON in Hamden benefits the Children’s Miracle Network and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Students involved in a campus' dance marathon organization spend a year gaining leadership, teamwork, and nonprofit business experience while raising funds and awareness for their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. The year culminates with an 8-40-hour dance marathon on each campus where students get to meet patient families treated at their local hospital, participate in games and dancing, and reveal their annual fundraising total.
“This donation means more to our QTHON family than words can describe. Our fight for the kids never stops and we appreciate American Eagle’s support. These funds will be used to provide life-saving care to children, supply the newest technology for the hospital, and enhance the patient and family experience,” said Hannah Baker, executive director, QTHON 2021.
