Providing Support for These Area Non-Profits
Bare Neccessities – Clinton, CT
Bare Necessities partners with social service agencies and food pantries along the shoreline. Through these partnerships we are able to supply diapers and wipes to those families that have been identified by the agencies as having a need. We are the only recognized diaper bank on the CT shoreline.
