Holiday Giving

‘Tis the Season of Giving

This year, the CT Chapter of IPMA-HR is looking to brighten the day of the children of the CT Children’s Medical Center. We are accepting new, unwrapped toys to donate to CCMC. Toys can be ordered directly from their ‘Wishlist’ and sent directly to them, or they can be brought to the Holiday Luncheon and our Executive Board will coordinate drop off.

To access the CT Children’s Wishlist, click link below.
