It’s that time of year when mailboxes, inboxes, and social media feeds fill up with donation requests. Of course we’re adding to that. From the mill renovation to education programs for the next generation of workers, every dollar truly is making an impact. Click here to donate now.

Building up and Raising Funds: Art of Work Gala

Building up and Raising Funds: Art of Work Gala
September 30, 2018

Oh, what a night! AMP's 3rd annual Art of Work Gala was a huge success. Everyone loved seeing the newly renovated building, the massive armature just waiting for the mural to be affixed, and the incredible height of the space. Delicious food by Spice Catering, beautiful music by players from the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, the opportunity to help paint "A M P" benches, and extraordinary “art in motion” video projections by Joe Wheaton all contributed to an evening full of appreciation for what’s been accomplished and anticipation for what’s to come. Special thanks to our corporate sponsors, Newman’s Own Foundation and Scope Construction Company, Inc. Click here for View more photos.

Building Up and Raising Funds: Sneak Peek

Building Up and Raising Funds: Sneak Peek
August 10, 2018

Thanks to the members who came to Friday's sneak peek event at the mill! We dedicated the entry to Kerry, signed the steel beams, enjoyed beer from Brewery Legitimus and treats from Hunny Buns Cafe and Bakery, and listened to music performed by Michelle Begley and Connecticut State Troubadour Kate Callahan. Time to get AMPed for the mural installation to begin this fall!

Thank you to the Eversource Foundation, who provided an $8,000 grant to support AMP's Outdoor Design and Growing program, a new summer pilot focusing on health and wellness for children and teens through experiences in food production and healthy eating, environmental awareness, design and building in nature, and outdoor arts experiences!

Our volunteers are busy helping us prepare for our annual appeal mailing, which is a little different this year. Newman's Own Foundation has invited AMP to participate in an online holiday giving challenge, which means that every dollar donated by our supporters from November 21–January 3 gives AMP the chance to win grant money from the foundation! So even though you'll be receiving an envelope with the mailing, we hope that you'll contribute to our online campaign instead. Stay tuned for details--and the link to give--on Tuesday. Thanks for your support!
