In December 2015, 64 volunteers from Ann’s Place wrapped books and gifts at Barnes and Noble in Danbury at the annual Gift Wrapping Fundraiser. 

Thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their time during the busy holidays to wrap gifts, and to represent Ann’s Place with such dedication, fun and enthusiasm.  Thank you to Barnes and Noble for allowing Ann’s Place volunteers to be there once again this year.  And thank you to all the customers for all of your donations and generosity.  All of this in the spirit of giving, and giving back.  

Healing Hearts of Newtown

Ann’s Place is so grateful to be the recipients of 50 Hearts of Hope, created for our clients by a kindergarten class from Newtown, CT.  Hearts of Hope are beautiful hand painted ceramic hearts which are offered as “a token of caring and compassion”.  We are so grateful that these gifts were given to Ann’s Place and we hope that those who painted them feel a special sense of fulfillment, knowing that these hearts will lift the spirits of many.
