Kids & Families Benefit from
Pomfret’s 12th Annual Town-Wide Tag Sale
May 24, 2018, Pomfret, CT … The Pomfret Proprietors raised over $1,000 at their 12th annual Town Wide Tag Sale on May 5thfrom map sales and registrations. Every year, profits are donated directly back into the community.
This year, the Proprietors are giving $500 to TEEG for a “Pomfret Power Pack” program starting this fall, which will help food insecure families with weekend meals. This program will be sustained by Pomfret School and Christ Church. The Proprietors are also once again helping Pomfret kids attend summer camp, donating two $250 “scholarships” for Pomfret children to attend the Hale YMCA Camp Cutler and the Windham-Tolland 4H Camp.
In the past dozen years, the Proprietors have donated over $8,000 to worthy causes, including student scholarships, the Pomfret Times newspaper, the Pomfret Food Pantry, the People’s Harvest Community Garden and the rebuilding of the First Congregational Church, to name just a few. The success of the Pomfret Town Wide Tag Sale has been evident by the large number of registrations and many hundreds of maps sold as well as the replication of this event in several other towns throughout the Quiet Corner in the last few years.
The Pomfret Proprietors Association is a volunteer group of business owners and managers whose mission is to share their beautiful town with others by promoting the excitement and fun of local business. See www.VisitPomfret.com for more information.
