Serving Up Support for Connecticut Children’s

Hungry for a hand-tossed pizza, smoked chicken, or country-style Reuben? How about house-made meatballs, garlic Cajun bread or Italian sausage served hot with smoked mozzarella and provolone?

So many options, one great cause!

On Thursday, Dec. 14, Nodine’s Smokehouse in Canton, Connecticut, is teaming up with Mitchell Subaru for a fundraising night to remember, all to benefit patient care at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.


Coinciding with Mitchell Subaru’s “Share The Love” event, which runs through Jan. 2, 2018, Nodine’s Smokehouse will donate 10% of proceeds from every purchase between the hours of 3 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Come hungry and support our kids!

Dec 14 @ 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm

For the past 20 years, troopers from Troop H of the Connecticut State Police have been as busy as Santa’s elves carrying out their December Toy Drive.

With assistance from Ambulance Service of Manchester (ASM) and Aetna Ambulance, the troopers have collected more than half a million toys and more than $200,000 in donations to benefit children who find themselves in the Emergency Department at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center during the holidays and throughout the year.

Children who have to visit Connecticut Children’s can be overwhelmed with the unknown. Toys collected by the State Police provide a welcome distraction to children and help encourage communication between a care provider and patient. Making a donation today helps provide smiles all year long. Sometimes a toy can be the one thing a child remembers about their visit – a memory you can create.

So schedule your holiday shopping and throw a few extra toys in the cart for the kids at Connecticut Children’s!

Who You ARE Supporting

My second pregnancy was a smooth, healthy one with no red flags on any of my routine ultrasounds. Rylan was born in Waterbury on Monday, October 6, 2015 weighing 9lbs 1oz. There were no red flags at the time of Rylan’s birth. It was not until 24 hours later, when he was ready to be discharged, that everything changed. Rylan went for two routine tests. A hearing test and a fairly new test for newborns- the pulse ox test (non-invasive test measures blood oxygen in the body).

This is the test he failed….
