Water Day!

We had another successful Water Day here at Main office! Luckily the weather held out for us to be able to soak our Executive Director Angela who was a champ about it all and walked away a lot more wet than when she showed up to work that day! (many, MANY bags were thrown her way)! We look forward to hosting the 3rd annual Water Day again in 2024!

We were able to raise over $600 which is split between the Wellness Committee and the Cheshire Fund! This money will help fund more fun activities such as our upcoming Pumpkin Carving Contest!

Koats for Kids

We are collecting winter coats again this year! Please make sure if you are planning to donate a coat it is in good repair, no rips or tears and it is washed before you bring it to your program office!

Please make sure you bring them in by October 9th, 2023 so we can get them to the donation centers in time to have them handed out before the cold weather! Please see posters in your Program Offices for more details about donatable items. 

Halloween Costume Contest!

October 31st feel free to dress up in your scariest, most Halloweenie costume you have!

Have your picture taken and submitted to Amanda Robertson or Jenn Glenn to win a prize. There will be 3 winners voted by the Wellness Committee! 

Pumpkin Carving Contest October 2023!

Keep an eye out in your programs early October for your Pumpkin! This year we are bringing a pumpkin to your program office. A photo of your pumpkin needs to be sent to Jenn Glenn and Amanda Robertson no later than October 24th, 2023.

The Wellness committee will vote on most creative pumpkin and the winner will be announced October 27th, 2023. 

Information Technology Department Updates

Did you know that Cheshire provides staff with an easy way to give back to our Everyday Dreams program? You can designate any amount to be automatically donated from your paycheck. 

Just think - if every employee donated just $1 each pay the Everyday Dreams Fund that would be over $300 per pay and over $7800 a year. A little goes a long way!

To sign up for payroll deductions, please speak to your Program Manager to complete a Payroll Authorizations & Deductions form.
