Good Deeds with ConnectiCare

A rewarding opportunity only for ConnectiCare members and families

Connecticut is our home. We live in the same towns and cities as our members. So it just seems natural to ask you to join us in helping do some good in our communities.

Good Deeds with ConnectiCare is an exciting, team-based volunteer program made possible through our partnership with Leadership Greater Hartford (LGH). After a successful pilot this spring, we’re opening up new opportunities to members age 18 and older.*

The non-profits who are looking for help (and their projects) are listed below. For anyone who wants to join, we require that you attend a kickoff meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 3, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Representatives of the organizations will be there to talk about the projects and answer questions. After that, you work with your team on a volunteer schedule to accommodate work and personal obligations.

Hands On Hartford serves low-income residents with food, housing, and health support. Learn more about the organization and its mission here.

Project: Winter weather is particularly hard on homeless people. Hands on Hartford needs a team to collect items for foot care kits (including socks and warmers) for homeless men, women and children. The team will assemble the kits and give them out to visitors of the organization’s Community Meals soup kitchen.

Capital City Education Alliance (CCEA) prepares youngsters to join the workforce. Learn more about the organization and its mission here.

Project: Good Deeds volunteers will help build and expand a program to help Juniors (ages 12-17) and Seniors (ages 18-21) through job shadowing opportunities, filming a “how not to interview” video, creating resume templates, helping with mock interviews, showcasing how to dress professionally, or starting a tutoring program.

Chrysalis Center, Inc. helps individuals who struggle with mental illness and/or substance abuse connect with their peers so they are less isolated and alone. Learn more about the organization and its mission here.

Project: The Good Deeds team will plan and hold a fall festival, full of fun and food, for participants in the center’s Recovery and Empowerment Center (REC). REC hosts a weekday program for adults with prolonged and severe mental illness living in poverty. The fall festival will help promote community building and strengthen clients’ social interactions. The event date will be determined by the Good Deeds volunteers but must occur on a weekday in the late afternoon.

When registering, you will have the opportunity to rank your project preference. We will do our best to assign you to your project of choice depending on available space.

Wonder what Good Deeds is like?

The commitment is short – about two months.
All events are local, usually early evenings or on weekends, starting with our Oct. 3 orientation!
See what members who participated last spring had to say about their experience.
